This is my mom’s cookie recipe. I’m not biased; these are yummy! When I was little, she would have these made and in the cookie jar before my brother got home from school. As soon as he was in the house, she’d put a couple cookies on a napkin, and I’d sit my little legs up to the dining room table. Mmmm… These cookies taste like home.
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup “healthy” sugar (such as pure cane sugar, sucanat, Rapadura, or other unrefined sugar)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups sprouted wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups oatmeal*
- 1/2 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all ingredients. Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough on cookie sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes. Optional: Roll each cookie in healthy sugar before baking.
*Note: Since this oatmeal has not been soaked, don’t eat these cookies too often.
