Introduction: Cinnamon-Raisin Oatmeal Cookies - the Best Ever!
Usually I only post Vegan recipes, but I just had to post this one. I was asked to make this recipe because apparently it was so good. Well, it is!
There is so much Oatmeal in these cookies, they're almost a health food, haha. At first they look very rich and heavy, but the texture is very light and crispy. It was really surprising to everyone how they turned out. They are no too sweet, you may need to add 1/4 cup of sugar in addition to the regular amount if you like really sweet cookies.
To make it VEGAN: Use an Egg Replacer. I put a picture of my favorite brand, so you can find it in the store easily. Also, use Earth Balance Margarine instead of butter.
Step 1: Ingredients
3/4 c Butter (or Earth Balance Maragrine to make it Vegan)
1 c Sugar
1 egg (or Egg Replacer to make it Vegan)
1 ts Vanilla
3/4 c Flour
1 ts Baking Soda
1/2 ts Baking Powder
1/4 ts Salt
1 ts Cinnamon
Pinch of Nutmeg (optional)
3 c Oats
1/2 c Raisins
Step 2: Method
-Creme the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer. Add the egg and vanilla.
-In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
-Start mixing with a big spoon by hand the dry and wet mixes.
-Add the Oats one cup at a time, then add the raisins.
You should have a very thick and sticky mixture by now. If you think it's too sticky or wet, add a little bit more flour. Make small balls and place then on a baking sheet. After the balls are in the baking sheet, with a wet hand (so the mixture doesn't stick to your hand), press the balls until they are about half an inch thick. You can make them as big or thick as you want. You'll get about 30 cookies from this batch.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on them
