Finally back to baking! Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

Wednesday, April 28

I am home!
After grocery shopping today, I decided to try a new-almost good for you-recipe.
"Healthy" Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

One reason these cookies are "healthy" is the recipe calls for applesauce rather than oil. It also has a small amount of butter compared to most cookie formulas.

1 c. AP (all purpose) flour.              1 egg
1 tsp baking powder                       1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tsp baking soda                         1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp salt                                      1 1/3 c. rolled oats
2 Tbsp unsalted butter                     1/2 c. raisins
1/2 c. sugar                                     1/2 c. brown sugar

1) Combine first four ingredients.
2) Beat together butter and sugar. Add in brown sugar, followed by the egg, applesauce, and vanilla (mix well after adding each ingredient).
3) Fold in flour mixture followed by the oats and raisins.

4) Teaspoon onto a sheet pan and gently flatten with a fork.

5) Bake for 10-12 minutes in a 375 degree oven.
*Rotate halfway through baking time.
**Chewy cookies will still look raw after 12 minutes in the oven. For crisp cookies, extend baking time.

This recipe is definitely a keeper! They are delicious!! I can't wait to enjoy a couple with my cappuccino tonight. =)

Comment from John after learning the cookies were "healthy"-"But they still taste good!"

I'm not lying-these cookies are YUM-O!
