Oatmeal Rasin and Pecan Cookies

I have been craving oatmeal rasin cookies for a while. Today I finally made them and was very happy about it. I started with this healthy recipe from the Whole Wheat Gourmet and made a few changes. They turned out really well. Still pretty healthy and also incredibly yummy!

Oatmeal Rasin and Pecan Cookies


1 c. whole wheat flour
1 1/2 c. rolled oats
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 c. honey
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. oil (corn, olive, or canola)
1/4 c. applesauce
1/4 c. milk
1 large egg (beat with 1 tbsp Water)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. raisins
1/2 c. pecans

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees (the lower temperature  is because honey in the recipe can burn easily). In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients together. In a separate medium bowl, mix wet ingredients together. Mix the wet ingredients into the large bowl with with the dry ingredients. Next, add the raisins and walnuts and mix. If the mixture seems too wet, add a bit of flour. If it isn't binding well, you can add an egg white. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or tinfoil sprayed with cooking spray. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto your baking sheet  and press down with a spoon.  Bake for  15 - 18 minutes or until bubbly but firm. Cool on plate or cooling rack. Enjoy!
