Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe
I like my oatmeal raisin cookies nice and chewy and soft. This is a recipe we turn to again and again! I actually subbed the white and brown sugars with honey and molasses and now I think they are healthy enough to even eat for breakfast.
My kids love them, too, which is great since they are packed with nutrients. If you think the butter is too much, you could sub out half of it with applesauce.
I hope these cookies find their way into your lunch box!
