• These cookies taste wonderful, really they do! They are also a much healthier cookie, with only half the sugar and butter than most recipes I found. To help keep the cookies moist, soak the raisins in water just before adding them into the dough, along with the reserved raisin water.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup sifted flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 cups quick oats

Preparation

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Place the raisins in a small bowl, cover them with water, and let them soak for 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir them until they’re evenly blended.
  3. Set aside 3 Tbsp of water from the bowl of raisins, then drain the raisins, discarding the remaining water.
  4. Whisk the egg in a medium bowl. Stir in the vanilla extract, melted butter, and reserved raisin water.
  5. Make a well in the flour mixture, then pour in the egg mixture and blend well. Use a spatula to stir in the oats and the raisins.
  6. With a tablespoon or cookie scoop (1 1/2 Tbsp size), place the portions of the dough on the cookie sheets, then use a spatula to flatten them slightly.
  7. Bake the cookies one sheet at a time, rotating the pan halfway through, until they are golden brown, about 16 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the sheet for 3 to 4 minutes, then use a spatula to transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
