Healthy cookies: oats, whole wheat flour and raisins

20121125-233044.jpg

Since there was some snow dust on the ground this morning I thought it would be a good idea to start my Christmas baking. The temperature has dropped a lot and it is nice to have a cozy baking going in the kitchen on a Sunday morning, at exactly 30 days to Christmas.
Nothing too rich here, but my delicious oats and raisins cookies, baked with whole wheat flour, that makes these cookies totally diabetes friendly and carb conscious.
The original recipe is here , it is also a nice option to add shredded coconut instead of raisins and dark chocolate chips instead of the milk chocolate chips. They freeze very well, I have a batch frozen already to get me started on my baking.

Healthy oats, whole wheat and raisins cookies

18 cookies

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups of rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup oil
1 Tbs Molasses ( or 1tbs brown sugar)
1 egg (beat with 1 Tbsp Water)
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup raisins

Pre heat the oven to 325 F (lower temperature due to the honey in the recipe which will burn more easily). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.
In a medium bowl, mix all the wet ingredients and fold it into the wet, stirring well. Add the raisins

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheets, or use a small ice scream scoop, pressing the batter down.
Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes or until golden on the bottom of the cookie.

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
