Kids love oatmeal cookies. Oats have the highest percentage of protein and fiber of any grain. Oats aid digestion and are good for bones and connective tissues. The fiber in oats is digested slowly keeping kids feeling full and their blood sugar levels steady. Kids that eat oatmeal for breakfast have more brain power and energy to meet the day. Oats help lower cholesterol levels and the risk of diabetes, cancer, and strokes. Kid Chefs can make yummy oatmeal cookies using organic ingredients. Cream, using a fork, 1 stick of softened unsalted butter and 1/3 cup of sugar and add 1/3 cup of maple syrup, 2 ounces applesauce, 1 tsp vanilla extract. Mix in ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour, ¾ cup organic old fashioned rolled oats, ½ tsp baking soda, ¼ tsp salt, ¼ tsp nutmeg, ½ tsp cinnamon and blend well. Stir in ¼ cup pecan and walnut pieces, ¼ cup dried cranberries, ½ cup chocolate chips. Spoon the dough onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes and cool 15 minutes.
