This is one of my favorite sugar cookie recipes. By using Kodiak Cake Flapjack Mix, which is made with whole wheat flour and whole grain oat flour, you can get lots of extra vitamins and minerals that aren’t normally found in a sugar cookie. Yes, they still have butter and sugar, and should be considered a treat, so be cautious about how many you eat in one sitting. But you can still feel better about making these instead of regular sugar cookies. So grab those cookie cutters and get baking!

Recipe Type: Dessert

Serving Size: 1 cookie

Makes 32 cookies


  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups Kodiak Flapjack Mix
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2–4 tablespoons milk (more or less to desired consistency)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Add egg, milk, vanilla, and almond extract.
  4. Mix until smooth.
  5. Add in Kodiak Mix, salt, and baking powder.
  6. Mix until fully incorporated.
  7. Roll out on a floured surface until about ¾ inch thick.
  8. Cut with cookie cutters.
  9. Place on a greased cookie sheet.
  10. Bake for 7 minutes (or longer for thicker cookies).
  11. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
  12. While cookies are cooling, mix all of the frosting ingredients together until smooth. (I like mine thinner, but you can do thicker frosting by adding more powdered sugar or using less milk.)

*Number of cookies will vary, based on the size of the cookie cutters you use, as well as how thinly you roll out the batter.
