Happy Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Who doesn’t love oatmeal cookies? Besides chocolate chip cookies, they are like the most universally liked cookie. Who knows, they might even have their own Facebook page…  I love that you can jazz them up with nuts, chocolate chips, coconut flakes, nutty butters or just keep them plain Jane! I think them best when they’re big, fluffy and chewy. So if you’re like me, this recipe is for you!



2 Cups packed brown sugar

4 Cups quick cooking oats

1 3/4 Cups all-purpose flour

1 Cup shortening

1/3 Cup milk

1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

5 Tablespoons Happy Hemp seeds, raw

1 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon nutmeg

1 Teaspoon baking soda

1 Teaspoon salt

1 Egg




1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Beat brown sugar, shortening, milk, egg, and vanilla extract in a bowl until mixture is creamy.

3. Stir oats, flour, Happy Hemp seeds, baking soda, and salt into moist ingredients.

4. Drop dough by spoonful onto non-greased baking sheets.

5. Cut banana into thin slices and place on top of each piece of cookie dough.

6. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until browned.
