Many thanks to Women’s Health Magazine for today’s Christmas Cookie post.  They look yummy and are described as “soft and chewy”!

Spiced Oatmeal Cookies


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup unbleached white flour
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar or date sugar
  • 1/3 cup frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed, or honey
  • 2 tablespoons frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed, or honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter or oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup shredded peeled apple
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 4 egg whites, stiffly beaten
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
In a food processor or blender, combine 1 cup of the oats with the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, allspice and brown sugar or date sugar. Process until the oats are coarsely ground and ingredients well mixed.  Then, stir in the remaining oats.
In another bowl, combine the juice concentrate or honey, butter or oil, vanilla, apples and raisins. Mix well.
Combine the contents of the blender & the bowl, stirring just until incorporated, then fold in the egg whites.
Drop the batter by heaping tablespoonfuls onto 2 no-stick 9″ x 13″ baking sheets.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, checking frequently during the last 5 minutes to avoid over-baking.  Allow to cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
