Kids’ Choice Fruit and Oat Cookies

by on December 10, 2009 · 6 comments

If you want a break from holiday cookies or just need something with a little more sustenance, I have the perfect cookie for you today. This one’s from King Arthur, and it’s fabulous.


Along with the semi-virtuous addition of whole wheat and oats, the cookie is packed with flavors from nuts, fruit and chocolate. Plus, the little bit of shortening combined with cold butter gives them perfectly rounded edges and a delightfully crispy texture. The only problem with these cookies is they are slightly addictive and I’m mad at myself for baking the whole batch at once because they keep calling me from the kitchen.

Speaking of Kids’s Choice, tomorrow’s cookie is going to be “Adults’ Choice”. I’m working on a boozy, Bourbon soaked cookie recipe from Richard Sax and I can’t wait to see how they turn out.

I’ll probably get out the shortening for those! And that’s saying something. ;)
They really look and sound great and send a few my way, then you won’t have to say you ate them all! hehe
Did you use regular 100% whole wheat flour or white ww? I have both, just wondering.

Katrina, I used white whole wheat.

It’s always nice to see a slightly healthier cookie to make us feel better when we indulge during the holiday season.

Healthy or not, I’d still eat it!

I could still eat this kid’s cookie and come back for more, I think… :)

I’ve made these several times, and especially like dried cranberries, white chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips together. Since I don’t usually have white whole wheat flour on hand, I usually use either whole wheat pastry flour, or half unbleached and half regular whole wheat flours
