Healthy, Tasty Oatmeal Cookies
Why I Love This Recipe
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).
Ingredients You'll Need
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
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.
