Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (A.k.a. Meag's Perfect Cookie)

Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (A.k.a. Meag's Perfect Cookie) created by WiGal

I created this recipe with my daughter after a conversation with my sister, Meagan, about her idea of a perfect oatmeal cookie. This is a cookie you can feel good about giving your kids. They are very moist and fluffy and taste even better the days after being baked. These are very adaptable so feel free to substitute chocolate chips and a bit of lemon zest for the raisins or add some cranberries and sliced almonds for some added fun!

    very good! I used 1/2 cup swerve and 1/2 cup brown sugar but stuck to the recipe for the rest. The cookies were chewy and delicious, if I make them again I'll just bake them for 14 minutes to get the edges a little crispy

    So Delicious!!!!! I did make some changes. This basically became a game of what do I have in my kitchen. I only had 1/4 cup of butter so I substituted the rest with applesauce. I only had 1.5 cups of rolled oats so I substituted 1/2 cup of quick oats. I only had 1/2 cup of brown sugar so I added 1/2 cup of pure maple syrup. I also only had sultanas. These cookies turned out amazing! Moist and tasty! I will definitely be making this again.

    Yum, yum, yum! These are addicting and not so bad for you! Very moist. I did not have any flax seed meal, but they still turned out great. Thanks for such a great recipe!

    Thank you delicious and now far less guilty of a treat. i used light margarine, plum sauce for the apple. whole rye for the whole wheat. I halved the brown sugar and subbed in sweet n low. the dough texture was a little dry, so they didnt' spread. the baked as shape dropped. i'm sure due to my not perfect measuring. great taste.
