There is nothing better than baking a new recipe and your entire family not only loves it but they finish the whole batch in two days. That’s exactly what happened with these soft Molasses Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. The recipe only make 12 cookies, which is a reasonable amount to bake so you don’t feel too overwhelmed with cookies in the house. I used my “healthier oatmeal raisin cookie” recipe, which uses whole wheat, coconut palm sugar and applesauce as an egg substitute and added molasses. The results were unanimous, these cookies were a favorite for the entire family and I won’t tell you how many were consumed as soon as they were cool enough to eat.
Your kitchen helpers will enjoy making the recipe with you. They can test out the coconut palm sugar, take a little taste of molasses and have fun pouring all the ingredients. I used a hand mixer to fully combine the batter and used a ice cream scoop to create 12 equal size cookies. Once you have created the 12 balls of dough, press each one down with your fingers, as these cookies will not spread and need a little help forming a perfect cookie shape.
These cookies are not only delicious to eat, the smell from the oven will have you thinking about the upcoming holidays.
