Snow Celebration-Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies

In celebration of our first snow of the year we decided we should make cookies!  These are gooey, soft, nutty cookies that use whole wheat flour & honey as the sweetener.  They’re actually healthy for you!

 

2 eggs

1 cup canola oil or melted butter

2/3 cup honey

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. Real Salt

1 tsp. baking soda

2 cups whole wheat flour (I prefer Prairie Gold)

3 cups oats

1/2 cup raisins

1/2-1 cup nuts

 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Spray a cookie sheet with oil spray.  Put eggs, oil, honey into mixing bowl and beat until smooth.  Add baking soda, salt & cinnamon & mix well.  Add flour, oats, nuts & raisins, mix until combined.  Spoon onto baking sheet, and bake about 8-10 minutes, until set but not firm.  Let cool & enjoy!  Great the next morning also for breakfast cookies.  Makes about 16-18 good sized cookies πŸ™‚ You could chill the dough beforehand for a prettier cookie but we never take the time!
