Wholesome Cookies + Hot Cacao Bliss
A Treat The Whole Family Can Enjoy
The holidays. They're best-of-the-best and the worst-of-the-worst. Let's focus on the best-of-the-best though... homemade desserts and curling up by the fire.
Our favorite way to spend winter nights? With cookies fresh out of the oven and a Tonic family favorite version of hot chocolate: hot Cacao Bliss.
Here's a recipe for wholesome and healthy oatmeal raisin cookies that are seriously delicious and full of thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin E and fiber. And when they're all done, make sure you have a bottle of Cacao Bliss on hand to warm up and wash down the cookies with.
- 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup all-purpose, whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ½ cup honey
- 1 large egg
- ½ cup melted coconut oil
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup raisins
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- Add the oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt to a large bowl. Stir to combine.
- In a medium bowl, add the honey and egg. Whisk until smooth. Add the melted (but not hot) coconut oil and vanilla. Whisk until well combined (about 1 minute).
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until all dry ingredients are moistened.
- Add the raisins and stir
- Drop rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto a baking sheet. Be sure to leave 2 inches between each cookie.
- Bake for 8-9 minutes. Cookies will look soft but will continue to crisp as they cool. Do not over bake.
- Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to continue cooling.
