Last week, Jacqueline, one of my daycare moms brought me some freshly baked cookies to try and they were so delicious I had to have the recipe. Aptly named "Field Cookies" they are loaded with goodness... lots of seeds and grains, but low in fat and sugar. This recipe calls for only one cup of butter and two cups of sugar to make seven dozen cookies which is not a lot compared to what most recipes call for. While Jacqueline's turned out like thicker drop cookies, mine flattened out during baking like typical chocolate chip cookies and I ended up with nine dozen instead of seven. These are a great and very tasty way to "fiber up" your diet!

2 c. unbleached flour (I used 1 white and 1 whole wheat)
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. raisins
1/2 c. sesame seeds
1 c. flax seeds
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
1/2 c. pumpkin seeds
1/2 c. poppy seeds
1 1/2 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. coconut
1 1/2 c. chocolate chips

2 c. brown sugar
1 c. unsalted butter, melted
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl mix together the first 12 ingredients. In a separate bowl beat together the butter, eggs , sugar and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients. The recipe says to roll dough into balls, place on cookie sheet and flatten balls with a fork but I didn't. I just dropped mine by a teaspoon and didn't bother to flatten them. They flattened out on their own in the oven. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.


  1. these look so good...can't wait to try them! thanks for sharing the recipe

  2. Those sound like my kind of cookies (not that chocolate chip or sugar cookies aren't also my kind of cookies)but I would love all the seeds in these. I may have to try them, but I'll have to do some shopping for seeds first.

  3. Yum! Those look great. I'll try anything with chocolate chip :-)

    Thanks for sharing.
