Here’s a healthier alternative to the traditional chocolate chip cookie (although I love those too).
Prep Time: 1 hour
Yields about 50 cookies
- 2 1/2 cups of oats
- 1 1/4 cups of flour (all-purpose)
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon (ground)
- 1 pinch of salt
- 3/4 cups of butter (softened)
- 2 cups of brown sugar (packed tight)
- 2 eggs (large)
- 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups of white raisins
Step 1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray baking sheets with vegetable cooking spray.
Step 2 – In a medium bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, stir with a fork and set aside.
Step 3 – Use a large mixing bowl and gather butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Use an electric mixer and beat ingredients until texture becomes creamy.
Step 4 – Sprinkle 1/3 of the flour mixture into the creamed mixture and beat contents until blended. Continue adding the flour mixture 1/3 at a time and mixing in between until fully blended. Add raisins and stir with a large spoon.
Step 5 – Take tablespoon sized portions and place on baking sheets. Cook 15-20 minutes or until desired softness and/crispiness is reached.
*Make sure to leave cookies on baking sheets after removing from oven for at least 3 minutes before transferring them to cooling rack.
