Ingredients

1/2 cup (125 ml) unsalted butter
3/4 cup (190 ml) white sugar
2 (large) eggs
1 1/4 cup (310 ml) whole wheat flour
1 tsp (5 ml) baking powder
1 tsp (5 ml) cinnamon
1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground nutmeg
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
1 cup (250 ml) quick rolled oats
3/4 cup (190 ml) raisins
1 (medium) Granny Smith apple, shredded

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F (175C).
  2. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. If you do not have parchment paper, mist the baking sheets lightly with vegetable spray.
  3. In a large glass bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well mixed.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and ground nutmeg; stir into the sugar mixture, add vanilla and mix until well blended.
  5. Fold in the rolled oats, raisins and shredded apples. Drop the cookie dough by the spoonful about 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  6. Bake in the centre of the oven for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Let the baking sheets cool on wire racks.
  7. Serve with a tall glass of milk.
