This recipe is adapted from razzledazzlerecipes.com. I suggest using WaterMelon's low fat baking mix (Low Fat Bisquick Substitute) to make these these cookies healthier. (Thanks, WaterMelon!) I also usually substitute unsweetened applesauce for all or part of the butter or margarine.
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2⁄3 cup softened margarine or 2⁄3 cup softened butter or 2⁄3 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs or 1⁄2 cup egg substitute
- 2 cups baking mix
- 1⁄2 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1 1⁄4 cups raisins (optional)
- Heat oven to 350*.
- Mix brown sugar, margarine or butter, vanilla, and eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients.
- Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake until light brown, about 10 minutes.
Five Stars WITH some adjustments.... I ran out of flour and all I had was this bag of low-fat baking mix that my grandma gave me... SO to make this recipe taste a little better I used 1 FULL cup of unsalted butter instead of 2/3cup, I also added 1/2cup white sugar and I put in a pinch of salt and instead of 1/2cup oats (come one, who makes oatmeal cookies with 1/2 cup of oats?!) I added two full cups (the extra butter helped with adding more oats.) Oh, and I added 1/2 cup extra baking mix to make them softer... And they turned out GREAT! My version is obviously less healthy... but come on, these are cookies lol!
I made these cookies today and they are great ! I used the applesauce and 1/2 cup brown sugar ( the other 1/2 cup was splenda) and they are sooo moist ! My kids loved them and even I didn't feel guilty eating them. I will definatly make these again and would probablly add some pecans just to have that extra crunch. They are very cake like. We loved them !
