Raisin Spice Omega Cookies

"I want to make cookies with raisins," said G-man. I was kind of shocked, because he does not like raisins... He diligently stirred the ingredients together, checking them off the list. Flaxseed meal replaces half of the butter with a source of Omega-3 and, along with the rolled oats, a source of soluble fiber. When the house filled with the festive, spicy aroma during baking, he excitedly paced along with me to see how they would turn out. Delicious!

Raisin Spice Omega Cookies

1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg

1/2 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves

1 cup raisins
1/2 cup rolled oats

Preheat oven to 375F

Cream the butter, sugar, and egg together in one bowl.

Combine the flaxseed meal, flour, baking powder and spices in another bowl. Add the wet and dry ingredients together and mix well. Stir in the raisins and rolled oats.

Roll into one-inch balls and place two inches apart on cookie sheets.  Bake for 10-11 minutes @375F. Makes two and a half dozen.
