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.
