3 1/3 cups 825 mL Robin Hood® All Purpose Whole Wheat Flour
1 tsp 5 mL baking soda
1 tsp 5 mL cinnamon
1/2 tsp 2 mL nutmeg
1/4 tsp 1 mL clove
1 cup 250 mL butter, softened
1 cup 250 mL sugar
1 cup 250 mL lightly packed brown sugar
1 cup 250 mL milk
1/4 cup 50 mL honey
1 tsp 5 mL vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 cup 250 mL Robin Hood Oats
1/2 cup 125 mL wheat germ
2 cups 500 mL raisins or chocolate chips
1/2 cup 125 mL chopped nuts


  1. Combine flour, baking soda and spices in a medium bowl. Stir well to blend.
  2. Tip

    Put your kids in charge of measuring and mixing the dry ingredients while you work on the wet ingredients. Then have them help you combine the two mixtures together.

  3. Cream butter and sugars together, in a separate large bowl, until light and fluffy.
  4. Add milk, honey, vanilla and eggs, beating well.
  5. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture and combine thoroughly.
  6. Stir in oats, wheat germ, raisins or chocolate chips and nuts.
  7. Tip

    If your nuts aren’t pre-chopped, put them in a resealable plastic bag and have your kids carefully crush them with a rolling pin.

  8. Drop by teaspoonfuls 2" (5 cm) apart on greased or parchment paper lined baking sheets.
  9. Tip

    Let your kids drop the mixture onto the baking sheet and show them how to measure how far apart they should be.

  10. Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.
