Original recipe yields 3 dozen

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into butter mixture before adding next. Beat in vanilla extract with last egg. Mix in flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in rolled oats and raisins; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until light and golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes before cooling completely on a wire rack. Store in airtight container.

These were not bad but they didn't taste like the regular oatmeal cookie either. I could tell that it had less sugar. I often use reduced fat ingredients in many recipes but when it comes to cookies, I prefer to use the standard recipe. I will probably stick with the original recipe instead of making this one.

Cookies did not spread out at all. If you want flatter cookies, you may want to press them down a little with the bottom of a glass before baking. The addition of cloves really did give the cookies a nice spicy flavor. I also added a cup of chopped pecans. Not overly sweet, so even makes a nice grab and go breakfast, with yogurt or milk.

I made a healthier change: replace 1/2 cup butter with 1/4 cup grape seed oil. So one stick of butter and 1/4 grape seed oil. Polyunsaturated fats can have a beneficial effect on your health when consumed in moderation and when used to replace saturated fats (butter). Polyunsaturated fats can help reduce the cholesterol levels in your blood and lower your risk of heart disease. Also, I substituted the white sugar with 2 tablespoons of Stevia baking blend. They came out delicious! Crunchy on outside, chewy on inside.
