Does anyone have an easy recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies WITHOUT nuts? Nuts are expensive and I rarely have them on hand. I want a recipe I can just whip up in a hurry. Thanks!
Starchild in VT
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
(2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups rolled oats
11/2 cups raisins
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper or waxed paper.
2 Either by hand or with electric mixer, beat butter until creamy. Add sugars; beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla.
3 Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg together in medium bowl. Stir dry ingredients into butter-sugar mixture. Stir in oats and raisins
roll dough into 2-inch balls. Place balls on parchment-lined cookie sheet, leaving at least 2 inches between each ball.
5 Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, 22 to 25 minutes. Let cool on cooling at least 30 minutes before peeling cookie from parchment.
I would recommend finding a recipe you like and just omitting the nuts. Just because they are in a recipe doesn't mean you have to use them.
The posted recipe sounds yummy. But if you already have a favorite recipe that includes nuts, you don't have to put them in. The recipe will still be good.
Here's an idea for even quicker cookie whip-ups, although they do not have raisins in the mix, you could add them to taste when making up the cookies.
OATMEAL COOKIE MIX
5 c. flour
5 c. rolled oats
3 c. sugar
4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
Mix together ingredients until well blended. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature. Stir thoroughly before measuring for recipe below. MAKES: 13 CUPS MIX
OATMEAL COOKIES FROM THE ABOVE MIX
4-1/2 c. OATMEAL COOKIE MIX
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp vinegar
1 egg, lightly beaten
2/3 c. veggie oil
Stir OATMEAL COOKIE MIX before measuring. Sour the milk by adding the vinegar to it. Combine sour milk, egg and oil; stir into MIX, blending well. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350*F for 10-12 minutes or until cookie edges begin to brown. Let cool on racks. MAKES: 60 COOKIES
I use the recipe from the Oatmeal container.
ANY oatmeal cookie recipe should work w/o nuts.
Nuts are almost always optional.
My granddaughter does not like any kind of nuts
so I just leave them out of all the recipes I make for her.
The easiest recipe is to buy a yellow or white cake mix, add the eggs and oil as directed, fold in a cup of raisins and a cup of oatmeal. This method works for anything you might want to add. Try a chocolate mix and add Chocolate chips. Bake as directed on package. Add some extra vanillla or almond for more flavor.
just leave the nuts out.
