These cookies are low-fat, low-calorie, chewy cookies that are fit for breakfast or a snack with a hot cup of tea. This version is not too sweet, and therefore ideal if you are watching your weight, or are really not that fond of sweets.

Notes: Substitute light brown sugar with refined sugar if you don’t like chewy cookies, and prefer snappy ones. Substitute vegetable oil with coconut oil or melted butter, if you like. I have not tried melted butter, but I have tried coconut oil. The flavour is completely different with coconut oil; the cookies turn out equally good.


  1. 1 ½ cups wholewheat flour
  2. ½ cup rolled oats
  3. ½ cup vegetable oil
  4. ½ cup buttermilk
  5. ¼ cup almond milk
  6. ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  7. ¼ cup organic alfalfa seeds
  8. ½ tspn pure vanilla extract
  9. ½ tspn salt
  10. 1 tspn baking powder


Preheat the oven to 150 C.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients – flour, oats, salt, baking powder, sugar;
  • In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients – oil, buttermilk, milk, vanilla
  • Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ones, and thoroughly combine.
  • Add the alfalfa seeds and fold these in, until it is a uniform mixture.
  • With a mini ice-cream scoop, scoop out equal amounts of the dough and bake at 150 C, for 25-35 minutes, turning the tray(s) half-way through.
  • Let the cookies cool completely, before storing them away.
