I’m forever on a search for delicious and healthy cookies. I don’t like my cookies to be overly sweet. These Rye Flake Raisin Cookies definitely fit the bill. They are healthy, slightly sweet and utterly delicious. I like to pretend they are so healthy they count as breakfast. I’m not saying it’s good to live in a world of pretend but every once in a while it doesn’t hurt.
My baby girl has still been sick. So we spent the weekend at home nurturing her back to health. We had lots of tea, baking and movie watching time.
I have never used or even tried rye flakes before. It was fun to use something different. These flakes have a slightly different taste from oats. More of a grain taste, it’s very subtle in these cookies though. Ava and I both really loved this recipe.
Try replacing rye flakes in your traditional oatmeal cookies next time. You will love them.
