• Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

    January 26, 2009

    These oatmeal raisin cookies turned out so incredibly soft and chewy! I think the canned squash was the key ingredient! ;-)

    Makes 20 cookies

    Ingredients:

    • 1 1/4 cup oats
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup canned squash
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
    • 1/2 cup raisins

    Directions:

    • Preheat oven to 350*F.
    • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until batter is blended evenly.
    • Use a tablespoon to portion cookies on a greased baking sheet, approximately 2 inches apart.
    • Bake cookies for 12-15 minutes.
    • Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool on wire rack.
    • Eat and enjoy!

    DELICIOUS!!! :mrgreen:

    The cookies look great – I never (obviously) would have thought to use squash. To be fair, I’d probably never bake cookies from scratch either :)

    Those look great. I love oatmeal cookies – I made a pumpkin version a while back that was delicious so I’m sure these are great.

    Those look SO GOOD I wish I could make them right now (I’m currently studying abroad in France, w/o access to an oven!). Those are exactly my type of cookies, healthy and with a lot of “stuff” in them! I may be wrong but I think they have only about 56 calories each (calculating calories instantaneously is my superpower . . .) and tons of fiber. Awesome recipe!

    They are in the oven right now! Cant wait to try them out!! I doubled the recipe (because the squash can that I’ve got is HUGE and I don’t want it to go to waste… ;) )!! BTW I used whole wheat flour and replace brown sugar by canne sugar… in order to make them super healthy!! :) Thanks to share your amazing recipes!!!

    I made these cookies last night and substituted canned pumpkin for the squash & added about 2 tbs ground flax – holy YUM. Thanks for the recipe Tina!

    I am going to give some (and the recipe with a link to your blog) to my cousins who I am going to see for the holidays!

    I made cookies very similar to these last night but made them with chocolate and vanilla chips instead of raisins. Delish and just enough chocolate to hit the spot!
