C is for Cookie!

Ok, I know... I know. Oatmeal over-kill!!  But I REALLY like oatmeal... and apparently my sister (fellow food and fitness lover) does too.  She made these gooey, chewy, moist oatmeal cookies the other day and I felt it would be a crime not to share the recipe.  Next time she's going to need to bake me my own batch... so yummy!!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies
Ingredients:
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil, preferably canola
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups Quaker oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 cup “mix-ins” (dried cranberries, mixed dried fruit pieces, raisins, mini chocolate chips or chopped nuts)

Preparation:
Heat oven to 350ºF. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, egg, oil, applesauce and vanilla on medium speed of electric mixer until combined. Add combined flours, baking soda and salt; beat on low speed just until blended. Stir in oats and “mix-ins.”
 
Drop dough by level measuring tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
 
Bake 9 to 10 minutes, until light brown. (Do not over-bake. Centers will appear soft.) Cool 1 to 2 minutes on cookie sheets; transfer to wire racks. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
  • Prep Time: 20 min
