Hearty Oat Cookies

These cookies look so yummy! They'd be a great snack for when you're on a hike or simply on the go.

(From Country Living)

Ingredients

½ c. whole-wheat flour
¼ c. all-purpose flour
½ c. granulated sugar
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
1 pinch Kosher salt
1 c. quick-cooking oats
1 c. unsweetened shredded coconut
½ c. walnuts
¼ c. golden raisins
¼ c. dried cranberries
¼ c. pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
½ c. unsalted butter
3 tbsp. Honey
½ tsp. baking soda
3 tbsp. boiling water


Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add the oats and coconut and toss to combine. Fold in the walnuts, raisins, cranberries, and pepitas.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and honey. In a small bowl, combine the baking soda and boiling water, then add to the butter mixture (it will become frothy).

Make a well in the center of the oat mixture, pour in the butter mixture and mix to combine.

Using wet hands, form the mixture into 15 balls (about 1/4 cup each) and place on the prepared sheets, spacing them 1 1/2 inches apart. Gently press each ball down so it is 1/2 inch thick and bake until golden brown, 16 to 17 minutes. Let cool completely on the baking sheets.
