Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies from Miss in the Kitchen

I do love to cook for my family and I believe that love does come through in the food.  Using great ingredients does make a big difference.  Last fall I started buying Eggland’s Best Eggs.  I was so pleased at the difference that I started telling my family how good they were.

When I got the opportunity to work with Eggland’s Best Eggs I was thrilled.  You can actually taste a difference and they have less saturated fat and more nutrition.

Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best Eggs contain:  10 times more Vitamin E, 4 times more Vitamin D, more than double the Omega-3, 25% less saturated fat, 3 times more Vitamin B12, and 38% more lutein.  Now that is something I can feel good about cooking with!

Oatmeal cookies Eggland's BestSince February is American Heart Healthy Month and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I made cookies.  Not just any cookies but Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

I used half the butter I normally use, whole wheat flour, old fashioned oats and plump juicy raisins.  So good that I was eating them for breakfast!

If this is how you feel you could always substitute chocolate chips or walnuts, pecans or just have plain oatmeal cookies, but I love the raisins!
