Want more bang for your buck? Try adding dried fruit and nuts, too. Golden raisins and peanuts would be a great combination.
CINNAMON-HONEY OAT DROP COOKIES
Start to finish: 30 minutes
Makes 36 cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Heat the oven to 350 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the butter, brown sugar, honey and vanilla. With the mixer running, add the eggs, one at a time, scraping the bowl in between additions.
Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon. Stir in the oats.
Scoop by the tablespoonful onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between each cookie. Using a slightly moistened hand, flatten the cookies until 1/2 inch thick.
In a small bowl, stir together the granulated sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Sprinkle lightly over the top of each cookie.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until no longer glossy and just starting to turn golden brown at the edges. Let cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
