When you want to give your family a treat that packs extra nutrition too, try these moist and flavourful cookies. A cold glass of milk and a couple of these yummy cookies make the perfect snack.


1 1/2 cups (375 mL) mixed dried fruit (apples, apricots, peaches, pears, raisins, cherries, cranberries, blueberries)
1/3 cup (80 mL) ground flax seeds
1 cup (250 mL) Milk
2 1/2 cups (625 mL) quick-cooking rolled oats
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) whole wheat flour
2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) ground cinnamon or ground ginger
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1 cup (250 mL) butter, softened
1 1/4 cups (310 mL) brown sugar, packed
1 egg


  1. Position racks in top and bottom thirds of oven and preheat to 375 °F (190 °C). Lightly butter 2 large baking sheets or line with parchment paper.
  2. Chop dried fruit if using large pieces; stir fruit and flax seeds into milk and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg until creamy. Using a wooden spoon, stir in oat mixture alternately with milk mixture, making 3 additions of dry ingredients and 2 of milk.
  4. Drop heaping tablespoons (15 mL) of batter onto prepared baking sheets at least 2 inches (5 cm) apart and flatten slightly. Bake for about 15 min, rotating pans halfway, or until golden around the edges yet soft in centre. Let cool for 3 min; transfer cookies to a rack to cool. Let baking sheets cool and repeat with remaining batter.
