Healthy-ish Irish Oatmeal Cookies

Rated as 4.11 out of 5 Stars

"On the back of a McCann's® Quick Cooking Irish Oatmeal box I noticed a recipe for 'Irish Oatmeal Cookies.' I more or less followed the recipe substituting things here and there, and the results were ├╝ber-delicious. Perfect for a coffee or tea break snack or breakfast. I would have added some cinnamon if my hubby didn't dislike that flavor so much. Please try it! Here's what I did."

Used ingredients as directed and the cookies were very dry. I think it needed a better bonding agent such as another egg; however the dough gave me great hope!

The cookies tasted good but the batter didn't bind and the baked cookies fell apart easily. Used dried cranberries instead of raisins, worked well. I won't make this recipe again.
