That's my fave oatmeal cookie recipe, too. I've tried others, but always go back to that one. I usually pour a little hot water over the raisins before mixing them in the batter to 'plump' them up a little, I guess because that's what my mom always did. If the raisins have been in my fridge for a while, I think that does help tender them up a bit.

I've made them without an electric mixer, just beat the heck out of them as long as you can. They're a bit denser, but still tasty!

I use my trusty KA.

Neither do I. I thought I was probably the only one here who didn't.

Since I bake maybe once a year, and when I do it's usually Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies, I figure I didn't need a trusty KA. I do have a little hand mixer. Just can never find the beater blades.

Yummy, I would try all the tweaks you asked about. Cookies are hard to mess up, and if they don't work, you can crumble them in ice cream, or repurpose them in apple crisp.

Let us know how they turn out!

I love the Quaker recipe I made them for years. The only thing I change is- Im not a fan of rasins so instead I use dried cranberries. Delious !

I've done that too. Dried cranberries work great in that recipe.

I also found "Honey Oatmeal cookies" with a search using that wording. One recipe is at All recipes and it does not call for sugar as an ingredient. Altho, there several ingredients in the recipe.

honey, recipe

ISO - Help With Oatmeal Cookie Recipes Well, I like to do my due diligence, so i went to the forum search bar and looked in the archives and did not find the recipe I wanted. I almost added a question to some past threads, but they were ten years old! ( the threads). I also did some google searches and "all recipes".com.. but all the recipes I found seemed to use sugar and had many multiple ingredients, which seemed to me to be unnecessary. I am telling you all of this because i really appreciate your time and i want to put my own efforts into finding what I am asking you for ..before I ask at the forum. That is the way I am.. Time is precious for everyone! I am looking for a [B]chewy oatmeal raisin cookie recipe made with honey[/B] and not sugar. I may substitute half the fat with applesauce, as that is what I just did with a cake. Although I might not need to. Simplicity is the keyword for the recipes I like to use. My friends find the finished products easier to digest if the ingredients are fewer. so, your mission, good bakers, should you choose to accept it. (Mission Possible)..is can someone provide me with a recipe for the above.? thanking you , whether you respond or not! yum 3 stars 1 reviews
