Sweet and Salty— who doesn’t love this combination? Chocolate covered pretzels anyone? Peanut butter and Jelly? Mmmm!

So what about sprinkling some sea salt on top of delicious cookies? Yeah?


When I saw this recipe I knew I had to make it! What makes these cookies special is the addition of sprinkled sea salt right before they go in the oven.  But what makes them REALLY special is that they aren’t terrible for you, either! They call for all whole-wheat flour (no all-purpose), only brown sugar (no white granulated) and only one stick of butter. Can’t complain there!

Okay, now you really want to make my delicious healthy cookies don’t you?

Well good.

They are totally easy, so keep reading.

  • 2 c. old-fashioned rolled oats

  3. Blend in the oats, flour, chocolate chips, and walnuts.
  4. Spoon the dough into scoops of about one tablespoon onto the baking sheet. Sprinkle each cookie with sea salt.
  5. Bake for about 13-15 minutes until the edges start to brown. (I like them slightly gooey so I took them out on the early side.)
