Weekly Recipe #126: Quick Snack Energy Cookies

Over the coming weeks, the recipes come from Ashley Majer, a nutrition student at St. Catherine University. Ashley became involved with Open Arms last fall when her Food Service Management class participated each week in our morning pack-out. Since then, she's continued volunteering in the kitchen, at the farm and by submitting some of her favorite recipes, like the one below.

This recipe is a favorite of hers when she's busy with work and school. 



· 3/4 cup wheat germ
· ¾ cup whole wheat flour
· 1 cup rolled oats
· ½ cup non fat dry milk
· ½ cup butter
· 1 egg
· 1 teaspoon vanilla
· 1 cup honey
· ¼ cup apple juice
· 1/2 cup craisins
· ½ cup coconut meat, shredded
· 1 cup carob chips
· 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
· 1 Tablespoon coconut oil


Preheat oven to 350’F and use oil to cover cookie sheet. In a medium bowl stir together the wheat germ, whole wheat flour and non fat dry milk. In a large bowl mix together the butter, egg, vanilla, honey, apple juice and slowly add mixture from other bowl mixing completely.

Mix in oats, carob chips, sunflower seeds and coconut shreds. With slightly damp hands roll dough into one inch balls and place on cookie sheet leaving three inches of cooking space between. Cook for 16 minutes or until golden brown and let cool.
