Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

The first time I made these old-fashioned cookies, I didn’t tell my family that the treats were lower in fat and calories. Their reaction when they found out? “No way!”
  • 1 cup raisins, or craisins
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 T molasses, or honey
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 ½ cups quick-cooking oats

In a food processor or blender, combine raisins, water, egg whites and molasses. Cover and process for 10-15 seconds or until raisins are finely chopped. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Beat in sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Combine flour, milk powder, baking powder and cinnamon; gradually add to raisin mixture. Stir in oats.

Drop by tablespoonfuls 2″ apart onto baking sheets coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Notes: used honey and craisins – absolutely amazing cookies!!
