Apple Oatmeal Cookies

Apple Oatmeal Cookies

1-1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats (uncooked)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg or allspice
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup finely chopped, peeled apple (such as Granny Smith)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract (optional)
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 375 F.

In medium bowl, combine oats, flours, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Stir to combine. Stir in raisins and apples.

In large bowl, combine egg, honey, vanilla, oil and milk. Stir in dry ingredients. Mix to form a smooth batter.

Drop batter onto ungreased baking sheets, using a rounded teaspoon of dough for each cookie, leaving 2 inches in between. Dip your fingers into water. Press the dough down to about 1-1/2 inches in diameter.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove sheet from oven. Transfer cookies to cooling rack.
