Oatmeal-raisin Cookies

This recipe came about when I was flicking through my recipe books wanting to make some cookies & feeling so disappointed that they all had about 1 cup of oil/margarine in them.
I wanted a lower fat version.

Makes 18 cookies

You'll need:

2 cups oats
3/4 wholemeal flour
1/2 brown sugar
2/3 cup raisins
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
50ml vanilla soy milk
2 tablespoons coconut oil

Preheat oven to 160degreesC. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl mix together oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, raisins and cinnamon.
(If you would like a smoother consistency to your cookies just put half the oats into a food processor before adding to the mixture)
Add the milk, coconut oil & maple syrup. Stir until all ingredients are well combined & mixture holds together slightly.
Wet your hands to roll the mixture. This will help it not to stick to your hands. Use about 2 tablespoons for each cookies - shape into a small ball & then press down onto the baking paper with a fork.
Bake for about 10 mins until lightly golden.
