Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup ( 1 1/2 sticks, 6 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/3 cups (4 5/8 ounces) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cups King Arthur Traditional Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 cups dried fruit: cranberries, diced apples, chopped dates, raisins, chopped apricots, or the dried fruits of your choice
  • 1 cup (3 3/4 ounces) diced pecans or walnuts

Directions

  • Cream together the butter, sugar, spices, leaveners, salt, and vanilla. Beat in the egg. Add the oats, flour, fruit, and nuts, and stir to combine.
  • Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake the cookies in a preheated 350�F oven for 7 minutes; reverse the pans on the racks, and bake for an additional 7 to 8 minutes, until cookies are beginning to brown around the edges, but are still soft in the center.
  • Remove from the oven, and cool on a rack. Yield: about 4 dozen cookies

Notes

These 100% whole-grain, golden-brown cookies definitely give fiber a good name!
