ULTIMATE OATMEAL COOKIES


Looking for a healthier version of oatmeal cookies?  This recipe for Oatmeal Cookies is just what you need. It is made with rolled oat and less sugar. I have added mixed peel and raisin which is easily replaced with dried cranberries, dried peaches or cherries. If you dough is sweeten by raisin, just add only a quarter cup of sugar but this is entirely up to you.

This cookies makes a great lunch box treat and  is perfect for cooking with your kids.

ULTIMATE OATMEAL COOKIES
Yield     :    40 cookies

1  C all purpose flour
1+1/2 C  rolled oat
1/2 C  vegan butter melted/oil
1/4 - 1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C  mixed peel
1/2 C  raisin
1/2 tsp baking powder
1-2 TB water


DIRECTION

Preheat oven @ 160 C.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt.

Whisk together butter and sugar.

Now add butter mixture to the flour, stir to combine.

Add in mixed peel and raisin, forms into soft dough, if too crumbly, add 1-2 tablespoons of water.

Pinch dough into small ball and flatten slightly. Place balls onto baking sheet.

Bake for 15-20 minutes (cookies will seem underdone but do not overbake). Remove from oven and let sit in the pan for 5 minutes.

Transfer onto rack to cool. When completely cool, store in an airtight container.
