>"Take Some Cholesterol Off Yous" Oatmeal Cookies


1/2 cup canola oil

1/3 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons honey
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 Teaspoon vanilla
2 cups old fashioned oats
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup raisins
Pre heat oven to 350

Combine oil, sugar, and honey in mixing bowl and beat until blended. Add vanilla and egg Substitute and combine.
In separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Add to wet ingredients and mix well. Mix in raisins. Here is what the dough looks like:

Drop rounded Tablespoons on parchment paper – and flatten gently with fingers (whatever shape you make them is what they will look like when they are baked – they do not flatten out anymore during baking.)

Bake for 10 minutes. Makes about 24 cookies.
I used several different suggested recipes and made my own, based on what The Hub will actually eat, and what seemed best for taste and our dietary goals (namely lowering cholesterol and NOT being horribly calorie-tastic.)
They are actually really tasty, cinnimon-y, chewy, sweet, moist and hearty. Very satisfying. And approved by The Hub too!
