Oatmeal Nursing Cookies

(by Kate Klein)

(adapted from the book Mother Rising)

1 c. golden raisins (I like to mix dried cherries in too)

1 c. butter, melted (can substitute coconut oil, if trying to avoid dairy)

I t. vanilla

3 eggs

I c. packed brown sugar

1 c. granulated sugar

2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1 t. salt

1 t. cinnamon

2 t. baking soda

1 1/2 c. rolled oats

1/2 c. wheat germ

3/4 c. pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, soak raisins in melted butter and vanilla for 1 hour.

Add eggs and sugars, beat well.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, oats, and wheat germ. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet.

Stir in the pecans by hand.

Spoon onto greased baking sheets.

Bake for 15 minutes until light golden in color.

Makes 4 dozen (these freeze well so it’s worth making the full quantity)

Share with your neighbors, friends and daughters.
