Oat & Raisin Cookies

Oat & Raisin Cookies
Things are seriously slowing down here at Cupcakes and Couscous HQ as we prepare to welcome our newest little cupcake to the family! And I think we are as ready as we will ever be - after a frantic last minute dash the nursery has been prepared, the baby clothes have been washed and sorted and my hospital bag is ready and waiting. Those who know me well will tell you that baking is one of my favorite things to do, and so while we count down the last few days until d-day I have managed fit in some baking time... and another recipe for you, hooray!
Oat & Raisin Cookies
Confession time... this recipe has evolved somewhat over the last week. What started as an attempt to create a sugar-free wholesome cookie went rather awry! I started by replacing the sugar with a baking sweetener and resisted the urge to include even the tiniest smidge of chewiness-inducing syrup. I also included mixed dried fruit (against the wishes of dear daughter who tried to convince me that chocolate chips were a much better idea!). The results, whilst edible, were in my opinion pretty disappointing as far as cookies go. Clearly I need more practice in this genre of sugar-free baking! I am sure I will attempt it again in future, but for now have I decided to stick to what I know with this version of the recipe. I hope you enjoy!
