Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies
1 1/4 cups granulated date sugar
3/4 cup brown rice syrup
2 tablespoons canola oil
10 oz prune puree or prune baby food
4 eggs whites or 1/2 cup Egg Beaters
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups old fashioned oats
2 cups unprocessed bran
2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cups raisins
2 teaspoons cinnamon
This recipe has no refined sugar. Date sugar and brown rice syrup are available at natural food stores. The bran is usually next to the oatmeal in the supermarket. I discovered ThriftyFun while looking for a recipe for prune puree!
Combine the first 6 ingredients, then add the rest, one at a time until well combined. Drop by almost 1/2 cup at a time on greased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes between 18 and 20 depending on size. These cookies freeze very well.
