Recipe: Oatmeal Functional Fruit CookiesBy brotholtz | December 9th, 2017
Here at the Seattle Gummy Company, we’re always looking for ways to incorporate gummies into everyday items—or as we say, to “gummyize” things. Instead of making a cookie gummy, which doesn’t sound too nice, we decided to stick some Functional Fruit into a classic: oatmeal raisin cookies. The result is Functional Cookies; what follows is the recipe:
- 1/2 cup butter (unsalted), softened
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 5/8 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1/2 cup chopped, toasted walnuts
- 2 packs Functional Fruit
Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees F. Toast walnuts until golden brown (about 4-5 minutes at medium heat)
Step 2: In a large bowl, cream together the two sugars and the butter until smooth. Beat in the egg, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in quick oats, walnuts, and Functional Fruit. Drop heaping spoonfuls onto un-greased baking sheets.
Step 3: Bake for 12 minutes in the oven. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet before transferring to wire rack.
Step 4: Profit? No, probably not—but you have cookies now!
