If you like the rich, warm flavor of molasses, you’ll love these cookies!
Please note that these are not a hard or crispy cookie. They are more cake-like in texture and consistency.

- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 cup safflower oil
- 1 large egg
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup quick cook oats (3 minute variety)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 tbsp. molasses
- 1/2 cup raisins (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oil, egg, vanilla extract, honey and molasses.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder.
Slowly add in the flour mix to the wet ingredients while whisking and then the oats. If adding raisins, add them here.
Using a regular dinner spoon, spoon 12 equal portions out on to parchment lined cookie sheets. Give them some room because they will spread. We got 6 cookies per regular-sized cookie sheet (1/2 sheet in restaurant terms)
Bake for 10-14 minutes, or until they appear to be cooked through. They will be light brown in color when finished.
NOTE: Watch these carefully. Do not over bake. They burn easily.
