Whole Grain 'steel-Cut' Oatmeal Cookies

I just recently started eating Coach's 'steel-cut, cracked and toasted' Oats and it's got me hooked. It's nutty and full of flavor. The original recipe from the package the brown sugar is packed and the table salt is regular salt. Please note that I'm not sure how this will work with regular oatmeal. The number of cookies will depend on the size you make them. Okay, I bought another brand of 'steel-cut' oatmeal to see if there was a difference. There was enough difference in the texture, flavor, cook-time and overall quality (to me) that I recommend you use the Coach's brand for this recipe.

I love Steel Cut Oatmeal cookies, but while this recipe is OK, I have always soaked/boiled the oats ahead of the cookie recipe, and this method makes a chewier cookie overall,while being the most healthy as well.
I also sometimes soak the raisins in Bourbon for about an hour, which adds a bite to the cookie as well. Very yummy cookie;)

Delicious! My Gluten Free (and other) adaptations: Only 1 cup of sugar (plenty sweet!), added one extra egg, upped cinnamon to 1 Tb, added 1tsp ginger, added 1/2 tsp of almond extract and more vanilla than called for, used 1.5 Cups GF flour blend + 1 cup Almond flour, 1/2 cup cranberries and 1/2 cup chocolate chips.

I used a different brand of steel cut oats, margarine instead of butter, and Stevia baking blend instead of sugar. I did not use cranberries or pecans, just sunmaid raisins. These came out fantastic. Soft and textured, delicious! Just sweet enough! Next time I will soak the steel cut oats a little to open then up more. Love this, looking forward to making again!
