RECIPE: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies {Healthy}

*Notice! Photos show the recipe doubled*


3/4 cup   Olive Oil

1 cup      Packed Brown Sugar

1/2 cup   Stevia (Or other low calorie sweetener)

1 Tsp     Baking Powder

1/4 Tsp  Baking Soda

2            Eggs

1 Tsp     Vanilla

1 3/4 c   Whole Wheat Flour

2 cups    Rolled Oats (not quick oats)


Put Olive Oil in a large mixing bowl (I use a Kitchen Aid mixer if that matters to you). Add Brown Sugar, Stevia, Baking Powder, and Baking Soda. Beat till combined.. Scrape the sides of bowl occasionally with a spatula. It will not, and I repeat WILL NOT taste good at this point. Don't even try it! 

Now it's time for the eggs.. Crack both of them and don't get any shells in your batter! Add your vanilla, and turn your mixer on again. Don't forget to wash your hands after those eggs. Oh and don't taste it now either.. It will not taste too good!

Beat in as much flour as you can with your mixer. Mine can hold all of the flour.. but if yours can't, don't worry about it! Just get your wooden spoon out and start mixing by hand! 

Now add the oats, and with a wooden spoon stir them in. Go ahead and get a cup or so of warm water. The batter is very dry at this point. After all the oats are stirred in.. dump as many raisins as you would like in your cookies.

Oil your pans, and preheat the oven to 375 degrees

Use a spoon to scoop a ball of cookie dough 1 inch or so apart from each other on the cookie dough pans. 

Bake for 10 minutes.. Feel cookies to see if they are completely baked thoroughly. If they are not.. put them in for another 3-5 minutes. 

And.. Ta-Da! You have some healthy cookies! They're pretty good too:) Let me know if you make this recipe! Feel free to tag me on Instagram @classycathleen_
