Nothing can compare with a homemade cookie for bringing a touch of pleasure to a coffee break or tea-time. These tempting cookies are quick, easy, and satisfying to make. You can easily vary the ingredients to suit your taste, I added the dry cherries, you may add more nuts, chocolate chips or peanut butter – the possibilities for inventiveness when making cookies are endless.
Oat Bran & Nuts Cookie Mix contains stone ground whole wheat flour, brown sugar, oat bran, rolled oats, walnuts, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. These full – bodied cookies are packed full of flavor, and they take only 15 minutes to make.
Makes about 18 cookies
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp. water
- 2 Tbsp dry cherries
- 1/3 cup oil or melted butter
- 2 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Oat Bran & Nut Cookie Mix
- chocolate mushrooms (product of Japan), optional, you can find them in Asian food market
Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, just mix together all ingredients until blended. Spoon onto the prepared sheets, spacing them about 1 1/2 inches apart, and bake until they are puffed and golden brown around the edges, 12-15 minutes.
Using a metal spatula, move the cookies onto the wire rack and let cool completely.
Tip: If you like to use chocolate mushrooms, you need to decorate your cookies while they are warm and soft.

desde luego que no hay nada como unas galletas caseras, y si tienen una presentación tan espectacular como estas, ya se comen solas, bicos

I was so happy seeing your photo and found my favorite childhood snack! Now these are available in Costco (in my area) and always tempted to buy (but I won't – it comes in like 8-10 boxes and dangerous!). I love your cute ideas of using these choco mushrooms – I've never seen they are used like this and it shows how creative you are! 🙂
