Amazing Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are really good! And they only have a little bit of butter in them! You can add raisins to them, or you can use chocolate chips instead! They are moist and tasty. One healthy recipe my family actually liked! makes 4 dozen

I was happy to find this recipe, but had to make changes for grand kids. Because the boys don't like nuts and raisins in theirs and I have a little granddaughter who loves raisins and nuts, I plump the raisins with water in the microwave and use an immersion blender on them with the nuts, applesauce and other things I have like coconut or dates. Then I divide the batter and mix chocolate chips in the boys' part. They love them.

Love these. Have made them twice now and they're worth the 20 minutes it takes from start to out of the oven! They definitely only make about 2 dozen or less but they're amazing!

LOVING This Cookie! Thank you so much superblondieno2!<br/>Ok, so far have only used chocolate chips instead of raisins. Used 1 whole egg and BUTTER. No Margarine is allowed in my fridge! So good, could not stop eating them. They were GONE in record time. No problem with texture or bake time. They smell so good, was waiting for them to be baked. No danger of burning here!<br/>When I use the raisins, will try apple butter instead of apple sauce, decrease the sugar and decrease the cinnamon. Great recipe - EASY as can be!
