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.

dsc07379Line 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!dsc07383
