Mixed Golden Raisins & Cherries Oats Cookies



I love oatmeal cookies but I never attempted to bake my own oatmeal cookies because oats in any kind was just not in my shopping list. Then, I came across oats on-sales again and thought why not, at least I can bake some cookies or use it in butter oats prawns, also oats is good for us, so why not? Hence, I bought some old fashioned rolled oats.

I saw this Rolled Oats Cookies recipe at CookBake Legacy and decided to give it a try. I modified it a little to suit what I have in the house, such as I used canola oil and added 1/2 cup of mixed dried golden raisins and cherries. The result is definitely yummy! This cookie is crunchy in itself and the dried fruit gave it an extra chewiness when you bite into it. I totally love it! I will try it with cornflakes next!



When cooled on wire rack, store it in an air-tight container. This recipe is definitely a keeper, good for Chinese New Year and it's so easy to make and so addictive (I couldn't stop eating!). This is also one recipe that I can play with. Thanks Chawanmushi for sharing the recipe! :) Oh, it yields 38 cookies for me.

Looks yummy! So is the rolled oats same as Quaker oatmeal? That's what we used to make our oatmeal cookies. But yours look much better.

Cocoa,
You should, this is very good, not to say healthy too.

Beachlover,
Thanks, you should try it. This is crunchy, more towards Asian liking. I think Big Boy Oven and Daphne got a recipe for soft and chewy oatmeal cookies. I guess people are willing to pay the price for good stuff!

Aiknhoon,
Thanks! Don't know leh as I never buy Quaker oatmeal before. But rolled oats is the oat that has been rolled flat. So it's pieces of flatten oats, it comes in quick cooking and old fashioned.

Daphne,
Thanks, it's very crunchy and nice! Not to say healtier too if you use canola oil.

Singarishgirl,
Thanks!

Andaliman,
Yes, you should try make some for Christmas!

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi Dwiana,
Not only it sounds healthy, it is indeed healthier with the use of canola oil instead of butter and addition of oats. ;)

BBOven,
