Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

I made some oatmeal raisin cookies last night and brought it into work today to share (so I don’t end up eating it all myself). They were a huge hit. I even got an request for the recipe by a coworker. So I decided I should share them. Similar concept as my oastmeal mukies but truly made from scratch.

These cookies are considerably healthier than any cookie you can buy or make from a package because you control what and how much ingredients you use. It’s preservative-free and incorporates fresh berries. So here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup sugar (brown sugar optional)
  • 1 cup raisin
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oil (Canola or avocado)
  • 1/3 cup water (for softer cookies)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries (put 3 blueberries/raspberries on top of the dough before baking)

Instructions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients
  2. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking
  3. Scoop out 1/3 cup-size dough and plop them on the sheet (Don’t press the dough it into the baking sheet!!!)
  4. Bake at 375* for 8-10 minutes
  5. Put aside to cool

The cookies will be soft when you take it out, it’s okay! They will harden on the outside after it cookies, but remain moist on the inside. The frozen berries would have melted onto the cookies during the baking process, giving it a tangy flavor.

If you are craving a cookie, why not make it yourself using this relatively healthier cookie recipe?

Bake and enjoy! 🙂
