Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time 12


1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal (this is one less cup than the original)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2-2/3 cups raisins (the golden ones taste so much better!)
1 tablespoon cinnamon (a lot more than the original)
a few sprinkles (about 1/8 tsp nutmeg)
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
3/4 cups sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup applesauce, approx.
2 TBSP Butter

I baked these in a 350 oven for about 12 minutes...note: the more applesauce you use, the longer it takes for the cookie to harden.

I was inspired by the little Quaker Oats guy...I basically took his recipe, made it a little healthier and added a few more spices! Tell me what you think of the final product!

I took these cookies to work, and they were gobbled up completely!

Improvised recipe (makes a little over 2 dozen, if you make 1 tbsp sized cookie dough servings).

I want a warm cookie after reading your recipe, thanks for sharing it!

HI Nelly! I have a really bad habit of just mixing together everything in the same bowl - but usually I try to mix all the dry ingredients first, then make room in the same bowl to add the wet ingredients, then I mix them all together. :) Hope that helps, please let me know if you have anymore questions!

do u just combine the ingriedients in a big bowl, does it matter what order??

these look delish! i usually add chopped apples or pears to oatmeal cookies- it gives them an interesting twist!
