Eggless Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cut Out Cookies

I'm so excited about this quick cut out cookie recipe to share with you all today!

I whipped this one up yesterday afternoon so my kids could try out there new rolling pins and shark/whale cookie cutters. AND I wanted to play with my HOME MADE cookie stamp.

Eggless Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cut Out Cookies


1 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tbs ground flax seed
2 tbs of water (more if needed)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs vanilla extract 

 Preheat oven to 350.

In your electric mixer cream butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in maple syrup, oats, flour, flax seed, and vanilla. Add in water a few drops at a time while mixing on medium/low speed. When the dough starts to come together you can stop adding water. 

Pat dough into a disk wrap in plastic and chill for 1/2 an hour.

On a lightly floured surface roll dough out to about an 1/8 of an inch cut into desired shapes. Bake for about 10 minutes. (depending on cookie cutter size baking times may vary)

I loved this cookie, it super crunchy (the way I like) it would be fantastic with a simple glaze over it as well. But this Mama wants to cut the sugar when its not needed! The boys were just as happy with glazeless cookies!

  1. Girlie! These look so good! Can I use my regular white flour? I just ran out of my Whole Wheat King Arthur flour yesterday and won't get any until this weekend. Let me know your thoughts. Not as healthy, no but maybe still better than other alternatives? Oh - blogging AGAIN about you and your fabulous scone recipe on Friday!

  2. I totally adore that "home made" cookie stamp - where did you get it?

    These cookies look right up my alley; I love a crunchy, yummy, but still healthy cookie! Do you think it would be possible to use regular oats (i never have quick oats in the house). Anyhoo, I'm totally pinning this right now so I can make them soon :-)

    PS. Found you through the linky at Newlyweds Blog

  3. Super good! These cookies are pretty. I want to eat one!

  4. What cute little cut outs! They look simple and delicious, and even a little healthy :D

  5. These are adorable. I love that stamp too!

  6. Jessica you can sub the flour! Justine, I found the stamp on

  7. Those look great, and I love the recipe. If they are crunchy as you said I think I'm going to love it.

  8. I know some people with egg allergies that are going to eat these up. Pardon the pun. Thanks for linking up (pinned)

  9. These look wonderfully delicious! I love a crunchy cookie :)

  10. Just found these (||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-NoMerchRules-_-) regularly 19.95 on sale for 6.99 at Williams-Sonoma! Since we're trying to go all whole-grain I was searching for a whole wheat cut-out recipe. May have to try these! (And I'm about to order a shark cookie cutter so I have it in time for Shark Week--Aug 12!)

  11. Can the quick cooking oats and flax seed be omitted or replaced with something else?

    1. No I don't thing the recipe will work if you make any changes to those ingredients. Flax works as an egg substitute. The oats are there because it's an oatmeal cookie. Better luck finding a different recipe. :)

  12. looking forward to baking theses goodies for my 3 yr old!
    Can maple syrup be substituted with something else
