"healthy" Oatmeal Cookies

Another snowy day here in the northeast- at least it is a good day to stay inside and bake these yummy oatmeal cookies- what makes them healthy you ask? Flax seed- it sounds strange but I was able to buy it at a local drug store and most natural food stores would also carry it.

Makes about 24-26 cookies
Preheat your oven to  350

In a large mixing bowl you will need to combine
1 cup all purpose flour
1 TBS ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons organic cold milled flax seed
1/2 cup brown sugar

In another large bowl or a stand mixer add
1/2 cup regular sugar
1 stick plus 3 tablespoons room temp butter
mix these two ingredients on high speed until no lumps then add
1 large egg
2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups oats
mix to combine then add in the dry ingredients from the first bowl
mix then lastly add in
1 cup raisins

scoop onto 2 siplat or parchment lined baking sheets - I used a 1" scoop but using a tablespoon per cookie soul be fine Bake for about 18 minutes rotating the cookie trays once during cooking Enjoy!
