They are the cookies from heaven but there is so much more goodness to these oatmeal cookies than just being tasty. They are also pretty darn good for you.
Oatmeal is delicious and nutritious. Oatmeal is soluble fiber that absorbs cholesterol to effectively flush it out of the body, but there is more to these cookies then just being oatmeal rich. These cookies have walnuts in them too and walnuts are rich in omega 3 fats.
If your family craves cookies then my oatmeal cookies just may be the ones that you want to bake up for them. These cookies are filled with a lot of good old fashioned love.
Ingredients for This Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookie Recipe
This is quite a large batch so no need to double the recipe.
2 cups zero trans-fats non-hydrogenated margarine
1 cup white sugar
1 cups brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
4 cups rolled oats
4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup coconut
Optional Add ins:
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
These require a cooking time of about 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees. If you are making smaller cookies then twelve or fifteen should fit on the tray, but if you are using rounded teaspoonfuls of dough, then place only eight per cookie tray.
To insure a softer cookie never ever over cook them. The longer a cookie is in the oven then the more moisture will be drawn out of them. For this recipe ten minutes in the oven is generally quite sufficient.
Lay Your Oatmeal Cookies out to Cool. They are so Yummy.
