I got this recipe years ago in a supermarket checkout cookbook called Fast Scratch Vegetarian--I think it MIGHT be from Land O' Lakes but my copy is fairly shredded so I can't be sure. At any rate, we have been making these for years, and though the recipe title is theirs I have to say I agree! I hope you do, too!
- 1 1⁄2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄2 cup Smart Balance butter spread (sorry land o' lakes!)
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup whole wheat pastry flour (original calls for AP)
- 1⁄4 cup raisins (optional)
- Heat oven to 375.
- In a large bowl combine all ingredients except flour. Beat at low speed until well mixed.
- Stir in flour, then raisins. Drop by even tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Yum, yum, yum!! Someone keep me away from these little gems! So easy and quick to make, and I love the change to ww flour, too! I did use butter, mostly becase I hate measuring margerine, and I added in 1/2 tsp cinnamon, too. After a small mishap with my golden raisins, I made up the rest with chopped walnuts, which worked out quite well! Thanks, smelly, these are awesome! Made for Veggie Swap 28, November.
This made two dozen light-textured, sweet oatmeal cookies. Better than most cookies this healthful, and healthier than most this good; but be honest when you count them! It's really easy to eat three or four without a second thought. Would have put raisins in them but didn't have any on hand.
These cookies are very, very yummy! They are the perfect oatmeal cookies with a lot of texture and great taste! YUM! I used only 1/4 cup sugar and added in some ground vanilla bean, which was a nice addition. Then I also decreased the butter to 86 g and in place of ordinary raisins I used chocolate covered ones, cause I had them on hand (and I luv chocolate in my oatmeal cookies). SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!! All in all I ended up with 34 yummy little morsels, that disappeared very quickly. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this recipe with us, smelly! Ill certainly make it again!
