Oat and Wheat Germ Cookie

Wheatgerm is one of the most nutritional products available but not everyone is aware of it. In fact, wheat germ contains 23 nutrients and has more nutrients per ounce than any other vegetable or grain. No doubt it has a glowing indictment from nutritionist and dietitian.

I love baking with wheatgerm especially if it's for the little tummy.  Kids can tell!

From my previous post I made a  wheat germ cookie for babies and this recipe is for the toddlers discriminating taste. Here's the final result...  Who says yummy can't be healthy?

chocolate chips ooze out and that's how the cookie crumble!

½  C firmly packed brown sugar
2   Tbsp unsalted butter
1   C wheatgerm
¾  C vegetable oil
1   premium Egg
1   tsp vanilla extract
1   C chocolate chips, optional
3   C steel cut oats
1   C whole wheat flour
½  tsp baking soda (aluminum free)

Heat oven to 350℉. Mix wet then dry ingredients. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove to wire rack and cool.
