Muesli Cookies

These cookies are loaded with grains, fruits and seeds, yet not too rich or sweet! For the muesli, use my recipe for Homemade Muesli or use a good brand such as Bob's Red Mill.

Makes about 32 medium cookies.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 c soft butter
  • 3/4 c packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c buttermilk
  • 1 c soft whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 c muesli

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and butter 2 cookie sheets.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment, place the butter and brown sugar. Beat on low for 3 minutes, or until creamy.
  3. Add egg and buttermilk; beat another 2 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Add these to the stand mixer bowl gradually, and beat until incorporated.
  5. Remove bowl from mixer and add the muesli, folding it in with a heavy spoon.
  6. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons on the baking sheet an inch apart or more.
  7. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned and firm, but not too dark on bottoms. Cool in pan. Transfer to tray or cookie jar.
