These oatmeal raisin cookies are a fantastic healthy snack! These goodies are healthier than the standard chocolate chip cookie that I sadly can not afford to eat all the time. Instead of Butter I have used vegetable oil (thistle oil to be specific), which is full of Vitamin E. If you want an added crunch, you can add some crushed walnuts. When they just come out of the oven they are a little crispier than I would like, but the next day, after they have fully cooled they are nice and soft!
I came to creating this recipe on a rainy day, when I felt like having some cookies but didn’t want rich unhealthy goodies. So I decided to just mix up some ingredients I had home. After a second run after a few days, I have perfected this oatmeal raisin cookie recipe and want to share it with you guys! Definitely try these on your next baking sunday, or why wait? Start baking now!
