[Food Series] Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

We aren't too big on sweets in our house and I am by no means a baker, but every now and then, especially around the holidays, my domestic, nostalgic side kicks in to overdrive! Cue the cookies! I make Oatmeal Banana Bread with some regularity, so this is a variation of that recipe. I tried to stay away from too much dairy and keep it as healthy as possible, that's why I was shocked when they turned out soooo yummy! The perfect healthy Christmas Cookie alternative! Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup half & half
1/4 cup water

In a large mixing bowl, add all of the dry ingredients and stir well. Then add the wet ingredients and make sure that everything is fully incorporated into the dough. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Let the dough sit on the counter for 10-15 minutes. On a lined baking sheet, drop 1 ounce spoonfuls of your dough on to the pan, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Make sure the cookies are about half an inch thick and about an inch in diameter. Bake them for 15 minutes. Allow them to cool for a minute or two, then devour!
