Who doesn’t like cookies?; we all get tempted when we see at the food court or coffee shops. But when I see them I could only think of  big number calories popping on my head. So I thought of making some home made cookies to have a bite with evening coffee.  This recipe can make about 16-20 cookies in 2 baking trays but I tried to fill my cake pan instead of second baking pan and made an oatmeal raisin cake.  And I also tried substituting oil with apple sauce. Lets make  some chewable cookies and cake that we can eat and cherish.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups Oatmeal (rolled oats/old fashioned oats)
  • 1 cup of Raisins
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/2 piece of unsalted butter( I used baby apple sauce)
  • 11/2 cup of brown sugar(1/2 cup sugar + 1 cup br.sugar)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsps cinnamon
  • 2 tbsps nutmeg
  • 1 tbsps baking salt
  • 1 tbsps baking soda
  • 2 tbsps water
  • 2 tbsps vanilla
  • 1/8 tbsp; ginger
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • almonds to garnish (optional)

PROCESS:

Mix wet ingredients:Butter /apple sauce, sugars, eggs, corn syrup, water and vanilla; beat well.

Mix dry ingredients:Combine flour, baking soda, spices and salt; then add to wet creamy mixture.

Add oats, raisins and beat well together.

While you start beating preheat oven at 350for 10 – 15mts. If you are using parchment paper preheat oven at 400°c.

Drop by scoop the cookie mixture onto ungreased baking sheet/parchemnt paper.Here u can top them with almonds or choco chips.

Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.Cool slightly on sheet and move on to cooling racks.
