5 Spice Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 12 mins

This is adapted from the Quaker oats Vanishing Oatmeal cookie recipe. I love oatmeal cookies, but most are too bland for me. My family gobble these up almost as soon as they come out of the oven. I use a small general purpose ice cream scoop to make uniformly sized cookies. Enjoy!

Well, I don't have to try this recipe to tell you how good it is. Quaker's Vanishing Oatmeal cookies are my go to recipe , too. But I also have to spice them up quite a bit. I hadn't thought about using 5 Spice powder--those are all the spices I use anyway. I also add walnuts. to lower overall calories I use: WheyLow sugar replacement, 1/2 Smart Balance margarine and 1/2 applesauce. Absolutely delicious. Thanks Judy in WA
