CHEWY OATMEAL COOKIES
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup coconut milk (I used LITE coconut milk, which worked- but feel the non-lite milk would have made the cookie more firm)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole wheat flour (I ground my own wheat on the PASTRY setting)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups quick oats
3/4 cup raisins (I used chocolate chips instead because I know my children will like the cookies a little bit more)
1 cup diced fruit, such as peaches, apples, or pears. I used APPLES and I diced them pretty little
Combine brown sugar and coconut milk in mixing bowl, stirring until creamy. Add flour, salt and baking powder and stir just until mixed. Add remaining ingredients, folding in the fresh fruit last.
Scoop onto a cookie sheet with a spoon or small ice cream scoop. The mix should be soft, but firm enought to stay in small mounds. When I first made these, I was worried that my batter was too runny. But I just placed the runny batter on the cookie sheet and they cooked up just fine. This is definitely a THIN cookie, but really good.
Bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees or until lightly browned on top and bottom.
These cookies freeze great- for a fun afternoon treat.
