These chewy oatmeal cookies are full of shredded carrots and raisins.
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 3/4 cup raisins
- 2 tablespoons hot water
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg white
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup, or honey
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup prune pie filling, (lekvar) (see Note)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup grated carrot, (1 large carrot)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Tips & Notes
- Note: Prune pie filling (lekvar) is a convenient replacement for much of the fat in baked goods. It can be found with the pie fillings in the baking section of most supermarkets.
