Oatmeal Cookies #7


Home | Recipes | O

Ingredients:

  • 1 c Whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 c Rolled oats
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1 ts Baking soda
  • 1/3 c Apple sauce
  • 1/2 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/4 c Plus
  • 2 tb Honey
  • 1 ts Vanilla

Directions:

Mix the above dry ingredients together, then the moist ingredients. It will be stiff! Add 1/2 C raisens and distribute them in the mix. Place on a sprayed cookie sheet in walnut-sized balls pressed down with a fork. Bake at 325 degree oven for 9 min, let cool on the sheet 1 minute, then cool longer on a rack.
 
I live in southern Mindanao (Philippines) so could not find apple butter, which the original recipe calls for. The apple sauce + cinnamon makes a pretty good substitute. [it occurs to me that a *very* ripe bananna, mashed up, would be an interesting variation to use instead of the apple sauce.]
 
The other thing I'd like to mention is that this recipe makes a very stiff dough, the shape of which does not alter during the baking process. So you should make the cookies the shape and thickness you want them. Watch them - they can burn easily if left too long.
 
They are good - sort of like a granola bar, except no FAT.
