APPLE WEEK! – Sunday: Apple-Oatmeal Cookies

Mrs Moveable Feast decided we have had quite enough cakes this week, thank you very much, so she took it upon herself to make a batch of Apple-Oatmeal Cookies from the WeightWatchers Cookbook to finish off Apple Week.

Preheat the oven to 175degC and line two baking sheets with baking parchment.

In a large bowl, combine 1 and a half cups of rolled oats (toasted until lightly browned), half a cup of plain flour, half a tsp of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp of baking soda, and a 1/4 tsp salt (all measurements given in US sizes, as they appear).

Cream a 1/4 cup light brown sugar with 2 and a half tbsp of softened unsalted butter. Add a large egg, 1 peeled, cored and coarsely grated apple and a half tsp of vanilla extract. Add the oats mixture; stir to blend, then stir in 1/4 cup of raisins.

Drop the dough by tablespoons onto the baking sheets, forming 12 cookies on each sheet; flatten with the back of a spoon. Bake until lightly browned, 12 -15 minutes. Cool completely on a rack.
