Oatmeal Cookies with Apples, Raisins & Nuts!
You will love these cookies, full of good things! Oatmeal, raisins, apples and nuts! So delicious and satisfying! I like them for breakfast and kids go wild for them!
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 1 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats, not quick oats
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp of baking powder
- 1/2 tsp of baking soda
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 1/2 cup of soft butter
- 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1 large egg or 2 small
- 2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of raisins
- 1/2 cup of chopped granny smith apple
- 1/2 cup of chopped nuts: walnuts, pecans or macadamias
- sugar to sprinkle on finished cookies
Preheat oven to 350°
Start by whisking the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Then, using a mixer, beat the butter and sugars until well combined, then add in the egg and vanilla, beat until well mixed.
Now, add in the flour/oat mixture a little at a time and mix on low speed until well blended. Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the raisins, apples and nuts. Refrigerate for 30 – 40 minutes.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment and drop by the spoonful about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12 – 14 minutes, let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then place them on a rack to cool completely! I like to sprinkle on a little sugar while hot out of the oven. Put the coffee on!
