The Great American Bake Sale by Alison Boteler (1991)
Whole wheat flour in these easy to make oatmeal raisin cookies gives a delicious wholesome flavor. Make extra and store in the freezer for a wholesome snack!
2-1/4 Cups whole wheat flour (all purpose flour can be substituted)
2 Cups dark brown sugar (firmly packed)
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1 Cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
2 Cups oatmeal (quick cooking)
1 Cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 Cup raisins
I substituted whole wheat flour for the all purpose flour in this recipe and am very happy with the results. You can also substitute chocolate chips for the raisins -- or use a combination of the two! Be sure not to over cook these cookies so that they remain tender and delicious!
