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 chewy oatmeal raisin cookie recipe made with honey 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

need new recipe help

Try this, it's a big fave around here. I've never made it with honey subbing for the sugar, but it might work!

You may subsitute honey for sugar ---- for a cup of sugar, use 3/4 cup of honey or maybe even a little less depending on the sweetness you want in the cookies. Some recipes say that when you use honey instead of sugar, you should lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees. You may have to do a little experimenting before you find the recipe you like best. Good Luck! Let us know when you find the recipe you like.

I just googled "oatmeal honey cookies" and several recipes came up. You may want to take a look at them.

Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies - Recipe | Quakeroats.com

These are my outstanding cookies.

I just took a quick look at the recipe for kicks and saw that the quantities for butter and brown sugar had been reduced and the cooking time had been cut by 2minutes. Curious.

You got me curious, Andy, so I compared the recipe in the link to the one under the lid in my QO box, and they're the same. Huh.

Sorry, that's not what I meant. I had copied my recipe from an oatmeal box into a WORD document about a dozen years ago. I compared that old recipe to the recipe in your link. I'm saying Quaker changed the recipe.

Butter reduced by 2 tablespoons from 1 cup to 1/2 cup+6 tablespoons.
Brown Sugar reduced from 1 cup to 3/4 cup.
Cooking time reduced from 10-12 minutes to 8-10 minutes.

Thank you Dawglover, Andy and Shelly cooks.

I did do a google search before I posted my question, as i mentioned. I used different wording from yours, Shelly.. but did find some recipes.

Basically, the ingredients were too rich in ingredients and all had sugar.
Thank you for the substitution information !

also, I do not have an electric mixer.

I am not a real cook..just a learner ..and one who likes really simple recipes to work with.

THANK YOU ALL for your help.

yum

That's interesting, Andy, I've only made the more recent version, and still love them.

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!
