Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened (sometimes I use vegan margarine!)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg (or ½ cup applesauce, yum!)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats (or 1 cup large oats)
  • 1 cup raisins

Instructions

  1. With an electric mixer, mix butter, and both sugars together. Once blended, mix in the egg and the vanilla.
  2. Add the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon until blended.
  3. Cover the cookie dough tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350, and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or reusable cookie sheets.
  5. Make 1.5-2 tablespoon sized cookie dough balls. Make sure to lave some space in between, as they do grow a bit.
  6. Bake in separate batches at 350°F for 10-12 minutes, or until the centre is set and edges are golden. Try not to overbake!
  7. Cool for 5-10 minutes before eating or storing.
