Happy Monday to all of you lovely people! I wish that I had a really awesome recap of my weekend for you but unfortunately work, organizing my apartment and girls night in just don’t exactly scream exciting…tell the world about it Kim! So I will spare you the details. Instead I something a little bit sweeter (pun fully intended!), remember the oatmeal raisin cookies I promised to tell you about? Voila!
Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1/2 Cup Margarine softened (you can also use butter if you prefer)
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 Cup Whole wheat flour (you can substitute all purpose if you prefer)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 & 1/2 Old Fashioned Oats (rolled oats also work)
3/4 cups raisins
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, brown sugar, egg and vanilla.
In another bowl mix the whole wheat flour, baking soda, oats, cinnamon and salt together. Gradually stir this into the creamed mixutre until well combined. Fold in the raisins.
Place cookies about 2 inches apart on your parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes. The cookie may appear to be moist or undercooked on the top, don’t continue cooking them. This is where the” chewy” comes from! Transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy!
