Ingredients

    3/4 cup Crisco
    1 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
    1/4 cup egg beaters
    1/3 cup skim milk
    1 1/2 tsp vanilla
    3 cups uncooked rolled oats
    1/2 cup oat flour**
    1/2 cup white flour
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1 cup craisins
    1 cup slivered almonds

Directions

Preheat oven to 375. Prepare 4 sheets of parchment paper to hold 12 cookies per sheet

Combine crisco, brown sugar, egg, milk, & vanilla in a mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed until well blended and fluffy looking.

In a separate bowl, combine oats, flour, oat flour, baking soda, salt & cinnamon.

Mix dry into wet at low speed until well blended.

Add craisins and almonds. mix at low speed

Drop large tablespoons 2 inches apart onto parchment paper.

Bake one baking sheet ata time for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

**Oat flour - easy as pie to do. Put the oats through the Cuisinart until light and fluffy. Store well in an airtight container. Can be used in pancakes as well for a little extra health kick. Basic ratio is 1 part oat flour to 4 part white flour and add baking powder to help it rise, but I've done it the opposite for pancakes and they turn out just fine...It's a fun and healthy experiment to try out. Google oats and find some new recipes out there!
