Fruit and Nut Oatmeal Cookies





  1. 1. Using a food processor, finely chop all of the fruit and nuts. Set aside in a medium bowl.
  2. 2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter while slowly adding all of the brown sugar; you may use the spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl.
  3. 3. Crack the egg into the small bowl and use the whisk or fork to beat it.
  4. 4. Add the beaten egg, vanilla extract, baking powder, and flour into the large mixing bowl; mix.
  5. 5. Add all of the dried fruits and nuts into the large mixing bowl; mix.
  6. 6. Add the oats into the large mixing bowl; mix.
  7. 7. Spoon out small portions of the cookie dough onto your cookie sheet (I typically make "globs" no more than 5cm (2in) wide at any point and less than 2cm (1in) high).
  8. 8. Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes, depending on how crisp you like them. They can burn very quickly if they are overcooked, so be careful!


If you make "globs" of approximately the same size as I do (less than 5cm (2in) wide at any point and less than 2cm (1in) high), you can expect an average of 5 dozen cookies.




This is a cookie recipe I developed for a "cookie walk" event at the parish I typically attend, Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Church. I wanted to make a cookie that was tasty, healthy (as much as a cookie can be healthy), and representative of many things I am currently growing or plan to grow in New Kidron. Of course, based on what I now know about nutrition, this cookie is not that good for humans: it is full of whole grains, sugar, polyunsatrated-fat-heavy nuts, and lots of other problem foods or nutrients. Thus, this recipe is more of a historical sidenote; I would NOT recommened baking or eating these cookies.


I made this recipe in December, 2011 but only added it to my website during the February 5, 2012 update. I last modified the contents on November 22, 2012.
