Bran-Oat-Raisin Cookies

I hate breakfast cereal so I love anything that lets me start the day without it. These are a great substitute. Just don't let your family eat too many at one time. They do have a lot of fiber in them.

Ingredients

1 c

3/4 c
boiling water
3/4 c
white sugar
1/4 c
high fiber drink mix
1/2 c
packed brown sugar
1
egg
1 Tbsp
milled flax seed + 3 tblsp. water (if you don't have this add another egg)
1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
grated nutmeg
1 tsp
vanilla
2 c
unbleached white flour
1 1/2 c
oatmeal, uncooked
2 c
bran flakes
3/4 c
shortening, butter flavor

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Once the water is boiling remove from heat and gently add the raisins. Stir gently to break up the raisins. Let them sit while to plump up.
2
In a large mixing bowl mix the sugars together with eggs, shortening and milled flax seed and water until light and fluffy. Drain the raisins into a strainer and let drip while you mix the dry ingredients. Scrap down the sides of the bowl as you go.
3
Next blend in the cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking powder and vanilla. Beat together until smooth. Add flour a 1/4 cup at a time. Blend well before adding more.
4
Add the raisins and mix well. Add the oatmeal a little at a time. Then add the bran flake cereal a little at a time. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before baking.
5
Preheat oven to 350'
You must bake on a well greased cookie sheet or parchment paper. I use a 1 ounce ice cream scoop or you can drop by the spoon. Make 2 to 3 dozen cookies depending on the size of cookie.
