Recipe Ingredients for A Better Oatmeal Cookie

1/2 cup Flax seed oil (keep refrigerated)
3/4 cup applesauce (or fresh apple, chopped)
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
2 eggs
1 cup dried mixed fruit, chopped
1/2 cup flax seed
1 cup slivered almonds (pecans, walnuts or peanuts can work, too, but almonds have fewer calories)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups wheat flour, whole grain
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 cup raisins
3 cups regular oats (long cooking not quick cooking!)

Recipe Directions for A Better Oatmeal Cookie

  1. Beat together oil, apples, honey and sugar.

  2. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.

  3. Add combined flour, baking soda, salt and spices and seeds; mix well. (be careful about measuring out the spices as they can be overpowering)

  4. Add oats, nuts and fruit; mix well.

  5. The orignator of this recipe recomends: Freeze the dough wrapped in 2 X 8 inch rolls of waxed paper. Place rolls in plastic freezer bags. To bake heat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice thin slices of frozen dough and place on un-greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet and then remove to serving plate.

  6. I placed the entire lot into a cake pan and baked it until a toothpick came out clean from poking the center. I then cut it into 36 bars and am using them as breakfast bars when I'm on the run.

  7. Again, the originator recomends: Don't eat more than 5 or six at a time. Freezing the cookie dough helps you control yourself. And who has time to stand around cooking several dozen cookies at a time anyway? Here's to your health and your pleasure.
