Homemade oatmeal cookies is a wonderful treat and nice (+economical!) gift for the holidays.

I’m perfectionist and decided to find the most delicious oatmeal cookies! I’ve tried dozens of the most popular recipes from different sites, in addition, changing all of them (reducing the amount of sugar and fat). My year-long marathon is close to the final, but among the winners the cookies without eggs have been found already. The following 2 recipe, both are very tasty! One with baking soda, other with baking powder. And both with molasses (this is my great finding), it gives very pleasant taste, extra soft and allows the cookies don’t grow stale longer. In addition, you can get a lot of useful substances from dark molasses (remember only betaine)! You can cook and without molasses, nothing terrible will happen, guests and relatives will like these cookies anyway very much (and I tasted all variety). But with molasses will be tastier 🙂 You can also replace regular sugar to brown instead of using molasses.

Oatmeal cookies without eggs with soda

(on the first picture in form of the triangles)

¾ cup softened butter stir well with ½ cup of sugar, add a teaspoon of vanilla extract (or vanilla sugar) and 1-2 teaspoons of molasses. Add raisins (or pieces of dried dates, apricots, cherries, cranberries, or pieces of any chocolate) and sifted mixture of 1/2 cup of oat flour (or oatmeal), 1 cup of plain flour and ½ teaspoon of baking soda. You can also add ½ teaspoon of cinnamon, I usually like cinnamon, but not in these cookies. You can put the dough in the fridge for half of hour, so it will be easier to make cookies using a glass or special forms. I do not put the dough in the fridge and make by my hands circles, ovals, triangles and hearts 🙂 Bake at 250F (120 C) 35 minutes or 12-15 minutes at 350F (180C) until dry toothpicks. Cookies are soft when hot, then get a little harder. Store at room temperature in a closed plastic box to 5 days.

¾ cup softened butter stir well with ¾ cup of sugar, add a teaspoon of vanilla extract (or vanilla sugar) and 2 teaspoons of molasses. Add raisins (or dried apricots, cherries, cranberries, or pieces of any chocolate) and sifted mixture of 2 cups of oat flour (or oatmeal), 1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder. Gradually add 1/4 -1/2 cup of cold water or milk. You can also add ½ teaspoon of cinnamon. You can put the dough in the fridge for half of hour, so it will be easier to make cookies using a glass or special forms. Bake at 250F (120 C) 35 minutes or 12-15 minutes at 350F (180C) until dry toothpicks. Cookies are very soft when hot, then get a little harder.
