These are my "Con Cookies" for energizing my husband and I during busy conventions. The recipe is adapted from Martha Stewart Everyday Food
Serves: 18 cookies
  • 1 cup white-whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dairy-free buttery sticks (2 sticks of Earth Balance)
  • ½ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs (see post above for egg-free option)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2½ cups quick oats
  • 1 cups raisins (chopped in a food processor or with a knife)
  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a mixing bowl, cream the buttery sticks and sugars with a hand mixer or stand mixer until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs and vanilla, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and beat just until combined.
  6. Stir in the oats, chopped raisins, sunflower seeds and coconut just until combined.
  7. Drop the dough by the level ¼-cup (I use my ice cream scoop) onto baking sheets about 1½ inches apart.
  8. Bake until they are golden brown and soft to the touch, about 18 minutes, rotating the cookie sheets halfway through.
  9. Cool 5 minutes on the cookie sheets and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
