Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are the best treat for an afternoon snack or after dinner dessert! A delicious oatmeal cookie made a little healthier with whole grains.
Celebrating American Heart Month with Eggland’s Best “Recipes from Your Heart” with Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. A delicious cookie made a little healthier with whole grains.
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 partner 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!
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!
I love raisins but I can’t help but laugh at this SomeeCard. I never eat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies without thinking about this!
If this is how you feel you could always substitute dried cranberries, chocolate chips or walnuts, pecans or just have plain oatmeal cookies, but I love the raisins!
I bake cookies just about every week. Working on the ranch, we are home 24/7 so I always try to have the cookie jar stocked. Cookies are perfect to grab on the way out the door or pack for lunch when the guys are in the hayfield.
I think with each batch of cookies I bake, they become my new favorite. So basically I have a new favorite every week but these Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are definitely worthy of your recipe box.
Healthy Oatmeal Cookies are something you can feel good about feeding your family. These Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are so tasty that you can’t even tell they are a healthy version!
So rather you are just baking a batch of cookies for your family to enjoy or if the school bake sale is coming up, these Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are the answer.
I would love to hear about your favorite cookie recipes! I’m always looking for new ones to try.
