Agave Honey Oatmeal Cookies

by on January 12, 2009 · 18 comments

If you happen to have some agave nectar and are looking for ways to use it, here’s a recipe you might like. I made a batch a few days ago and think these tasted even better today. Maybe the agave and honey keeps them fresh? I’m not sure, but I’ll be making them again. Next time, I’ll have to leave the raisins out so my daughter will eat them. She’s boycotted pretty much all dried fruit.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix egg, agave, honey, oil and vanilla together in a bowl. Stir very well.
Combine flour, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir very well, then add to agave mixture and stir until blended. Stir in the oats and raisins. Let batter sit for about 5 minutes.

Using a tablespoon measure, scoop up dough and arrange on parchment lined cookie sheets spacing 2 inches apart. Bake one sheet at a time for about 10-11 minutes. Let cool completely.

Makes 8 cookies

Looove agave!!

One of these days I’m going to have to get some agave nectar to find out what the buzz is about. Your cookies look great!
Will Fuzz eat nuts? One of mine will still occasionally pass on something because it has nuts in it!

Anna January 12, 2009 at 1:02 pm

Sue, she’s okay with nuts. In fact, if I toast them and leave them on the counter, she comes in and steals them. But she hates raisins, cranberries or anything fruity in baked goods.

I can attest–I made them this morning (with a few slight changes), and they are great as a healthy oatmeal cookie! Thanks, Anna. Now I’m out of agave for the time.

Kay January 12, 2009 at 1:48 pm

I love agave nectar! I’m going to have to give this recipe a go. Looks delicious!

Katrina January 12, 2009 at 3:00 pm

I used evaporated cane juice sugar in place of the honey. But my cookies look just like Anna’s!

Sara January 12, 2009 at 3:26 pm

I’ve never used agave nectar before, but I’ve heard good things about it.

Oh, I love the sounds of this recipe! I have had a cookie recipe using Honey bookmarked for months. I am adding this to my list!

Carly January 12, 2009 at 9:17 pm

I am so excited you posted this recipe! I just bought some agave nectar and have been wanting to use it but didn’t know how. I can’t wait to try these cookies out!

Anna January 12, 2009 at 9:21 pm

Have fun with your agave nectar, Carly!

Katrina (from Baking & Boys) made the cookies too. She made a few slight changes, so if you don’t like this version you can try hers when and if she posts it.

Wow! These look fantastic. I’m always looking for a good oatmeal cookie recipe. Thanks!

RecipeGirl January 13, 2009 at 9:27 am

I’m all over these Anna! Trying to eat healthier, and trying to find healthier snacks for the little guy. Maybe he’ll even eat the raisins!

Great recipe – I use agave all the time now it really is wonderful to cook with and has exceptional flavor!!

Sally McEntire January 16, 2009 at 7:01 pm

Cool! I’m always looking for “healthy” cookie recipes. I’ll have to leave out the raisins as well, silly picky children.

Nick January 16, 2009 at 11:12 pm

I’ll be giving these a try for sure, bookmarked! Perhaps I’ll even make them this weekend, I’ve got nothing else to do!

We just tried this and replaced the egg with flax seed and water (1 tsp flax + 1 tbsp water). Also replaced the raisins with grain sweetened chocolate chips. Came out great!

I should have known you had an agave cookie recipe! Will add it to my “try” list. Thanks for all your ideas and inspiration.

I made these cookies yesterday and they were pretty awesome, specially if you think they’re almost fat free cookies.
But when I had them 4 breakfast, they were too chewy, almost like a gum! Haha, its that normal??
