Oatmeal Walnut Raisin Cookies

After having a slight disaster with completely torching some nuts in the oven earlier today, I figured the best way to get rid of the smell in the house would be to bake something yummy.

Enter: delicious nutty oatmeal cookies! These solved all my problems and the house is filled with a cinnamony mouthwatering smell.



Oatmeal Walnut Raisin Cookies
makes a little over 3 dozen cookies


Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
  • 3/4 c packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c egg substitute (or 2 eggs)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 c oats
  • 3/4 c chopped walnuts (90g)
  • 1/2 c raisins (you can use more if you like super-raisiny cookies!)
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Beat butter and sugars together until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. 
  2. Mix together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined. 
  3. Stir in oats, walnuts and raisins. Scoop batter onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. 
The dough tasted like heaven. I still eat cookie dough and cake/brownie batter even when there's eggs in it. It's just too good to pass up so I'm willing to take the risk :) 


While I was baking I was reading this book:


Let's just say that it's not the most interesting. Which would you rather occupy yourself with??


I think that cinnamon baked goods have the best aroma ever, hands down. 



I had two fresh out of the oven with almond milk for a snack.


Heavenly!


These were perfectly chewy, flavorful, and there were chunks of nuts or raisins in every bite!


And now we have a bunch of these delicious cookies sitting around. I wonder how long they're going to last...


Enjoy!
