Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

This is recipe that I found in a magazine, but changed it up a little to make it healthier. It is seriously my husband’s favorite. I have never had anyone try them that hasn’t asked for the recipe.

This is where I switch to my cookie paddles if I am using my Bosch mixer. If not use your hands and then add the flour and mix until combined.

The dough will be fairly dry so pack the scoop and then once it is on the cookie sheet flatten it out with your hand or the bottom of a cup.
