Normally I am not a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, but chocolate seems to be a game changer for me and these cookies are no exception. My mom and I have been obsessing over these for weeks and we decided we had to share the recipe with our favorite internet friends.
As a bonus, these cookies are a great bedtime snack for those with blood sugar issues like us. We are hypoglycemic and traditional sugary desserts can easily lead to a bad night’s sleep. The oatmeal is filling, but they don’t contain loads of sugar that will keep you up all night scrolling through Facebook.
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 cup chocolate cover raisin
- Add flour, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg into a medium mixing bowl. Whisk dry ingredients until well combined.
- In a large mixing bow, beat the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer on low until creamy.
- Add the eggs to the butter and sugar mixture, one at a time, and continue to beat until well incorporated.
- Add in the applesauce.
- Then add the dry ingredients and continue to beat until smooth.
- Add in the oats, and mix once more with the beater until combined.
- Fold in the chocolate covered raisins.
- Spoon or scoop dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets. (Each cookie should be approximately 2 tablespoons.)
