Chewy Oat and Raisin Biscuits

    28 minutes

    These are very moist and chewy biscuits. They don't keep too well at room temperature so store them in the fridge.

    This cookie is delicious with some modifications. I used all whole wheat flour, doubled the yogurt (used low fat vanilla), halfed the sugar to 1/2 cup since the yogurt is already sweetened (used only brown sugar), used 1 whole egg rather than 2 egg whites (why waste it?), and skipped the butter flavored granules. Instead of adding in my oatmeal and raisins last, I stirred it in with my wet ingredients before adding the flour mixture to absorb some moisture. To make up for the butter flavor, I would use butter-flavored non stick spray. I had to bake mine for 11 minutes to get them cooked through and they were just a bit more than a tbs per cookie. After baking, I let them sit on the baking sheet for about 3 minutes so they can be chewy. Put them in the fridge and they will stay moist and will be chewy. They actually taste better the next day! Hope my review helped! =D  -  08 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    If you're reading this review, that means you're in the mood for a soft oatmeal cookie- so get baking! These are exactly what I always thought oatmeal cookies should be like- moist, chewy, mmmmm mmmmm good. I used peach flavored yogurt- the whole 8 oz. of it- and I felt like I was eating peach oatmeal in delicious cookie form. I can't believe it's not butter in these. My fiance loved them- and he thought I was lying when I told him there was no butter. Enjoy!  -  21 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Absolutely great! They are chewy, soft, & tasty. Low fat...but don't have a low fat taste...they taste 'real'. My friends ate them up, couldn't believe they were low fat, and wanted the recipe right away. The cookies are also very easy to make. Defintely recommend.  -  26 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
