Here is a oatmeal cookie recipe adapted from Stephanie Jaworski from Joyofbaking.com. I wanted to try this recipe so that Rastacook can start appreciating oatmeal, its a great healthy snack, and since Rastacook never takes the time to make breakfast for himself this pairs perfectly with his morning coffee.
I added a smashed banana because I wanted the cookies to be a little more moist.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Make sure the oven rack is in the middle of the oven.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Roast nuts by placing them on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Beat the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth. Add egg and vanilla until combined. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture till incorporated. Stir in oats, nuts, and raisins.
I prefer smaller cookies so I use a small ice cream scoop, place them on the baking sheet 1" apart, then pat them down with my fingers. Bake cookies for 11 minutes (for moist cookies). Once they're done place them on a wire rack to cool, then keep in a cookie jar.
