Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

So, for the first time in my life I invented a recipe completely from scratch! I admit the first two tries at making these did not turn out so well. I had to tweak some of the ingredients and measurements a bit, but finally, on try number three, I succeeded with the following recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies (a healthy version). Enjoy!

Mix and soak the following ingredients for 12 to 24 hours:

  • 1 1/4 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup of yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of oats

After 12-24 hours has elapsed, add in the following ingredients and mix thoroughly:

  • 1 cup Rapadura
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

Drop mixture by heaping tablespoons several inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes (or so depending on size of cookies). Note: These cookies are not crunchy. They have a softer consistency than most cookies.

Yield: 2 dozen
