Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

I have been baking like crazy since earlier this month.  I only discovered recently that the oven we bought could actually be used for baking! Oh my goodness! At first, I started with the Oatmeal Cookies, Carrot Cake and I also tried using the oven to make Chicken Roulade! I was just going gaga about baking! And oh, I made Lemon Bars too!

At first I felt bad not being able to realize that I could've used the oven to bake ham for the holidays. But then again, it could be a blessing in disguise! Haha Because the Husband doesn't like ham and secondly, ham is very expensive here in the Lion City. Actually, almost everything here is expensive. :|

God knows how much I missed baking. I love love love it. It's been 2 years since I last baked a decent cake. Maybe I was too tired from babysitting that I completely forgot about my love for baking. I have not been trained formally but I guess it comes naturally if it's in your genes. You see, my mother loves baking and so does my sister. We have a small bakery back home and I guess it would be insane if I didn't know basic baking at all!

I'm planning to make a healthier version of the Oatmeal Cookies this time. I will use the recipe from because it's easy to prepare and the ingredients are tummy-friendly.
  • 3 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a cookie sheet. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix butter, brown sugar, honey, egg and water. Make sure to scrape the sides to make mixture well blended.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients (flour, salt and baking soda). Add the oats then carefully mix in with the butter mixture. Also add the chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop spoonfuls on the cookie sheet. Bake them around 12-15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.

Here's the first batch of my Healthy Oatmeal Cookies:

For a yummy and tummy-friendly snack :)
