Full-of-Goodness Oatmeal Cookies
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
These cookies are sooo yummy! I did make a few tweaks... I didn't have any dried plums so I omitted them and increased the raisins to 1 1/2 cups. I wasn't sure we'd like the raisins all plumped up so I only added 1/4 cup in with the chopped dates. I also decreased the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and added 1/4 teaspoon Stevia to get about the same amount of sweetness, used no-egg egg replacer due to allergies, substituted homemade pear sauce in place of applesauce (due to intolerance to apples), omitted orange peel because I didn't have, I replaced 1 cup quick oats with 1 cup old fashioned oats, used only a pinch of cinnamon and added 1 teaspoon cardamom. Because I was trying this recipe out for the first time, I used a silicone baking liner for the first pan instead of . That worked great! The next pan, I used a preseasoned stoneware pan ungreased and that also worked well. I beieve I've found my new go-to cookie! This recipe has endless possibilities while still remaining on the healthier side. Next time I think I'll try adding some unsweetened dried peaches or blueberries! Thanks for a FANTASTIC recipe.
