From EatingWell:  March/April 1995

These chewy oatmeal cookies are full of shredded carrots and raisins.

About 2 1/2 dozen cookies | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray.
  2. Spread oats on an ungreased baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted, 5 to 7 minutes. Meanwhile, combine raisins with hot water in a small bowl; cover and set aside to plump.
  3. Whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Whisk together whole egg, egg white, brown sugar, corn syrup (or honey), oil, prune pie filling and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Add the dry ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in carrot, the toasted oats and the plumped raisins with any soaking liquid.
  4. Drop the batter by rounded tablespoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake, one sheet at a time, until the tops spring back when touched lightly, about 15 minutes. Transfer cookies to racks and let cool.
