Healthy Oatmeal Mint Cookies

These are a nice healthy cookie that you don't have to feel bad for eating.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups of large flaked rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBLS cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup applesauce
1 TBLS molasses (brown sugar + maple syrup)
1 egg ( beat w/ one TBLS water)
1 tsp vanilla
mint chocolate chips 

Mix all dry ingredients together, then mix wet separately. Add wet ingredients to dry. 

Cool mix for 20 min. in fridge to let oats expand.

Preheat 335 degrees

Bake 10 min. 

*I cook for less than ten minutes and pull them out while still gooey. If they are cooked longer they dry out more and are more similar to a granola bar which can be good, just different.

**If you don't like mint substitute for rasion + walnut, white chocolate chips + cran-raison, chocolate chips, or whatever is your favorite addition.
