Ingredients

1½ cups quick cooking rolled oats
¾ cup all-purpose flour
¾ cup whole wheat flour
½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1½ teaspoons cinnamon
½ cup raisins
1 cup finely chopped, peeled apple (such as Granny Smith)
1 egg, slightly beaten
½ cup honey
½ cup oil
⅓ cup milk

Method

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine oats, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Stir in raisins and apples. In a large bowl, combine egg, honey, oil and milk. Stir in dry ingredients. Mix to form a smooth batter. Drop batter onto ungreased baking sheets, using a rounded teaspoon of dough for each cooking, leaving 2” between. Dip fingers into water. Press dough down to about 1½” diameter. Bake in preheat 375 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove sheet from oven. Transfer cookies to cooling rack.


*Check cookies while baking to make sure they are not getting overdone on the bottoms, especially if using a dark baking sheet. Dark cookie sheets absorb more heat and tend to burn cookies before baking is complete.
