Recipe Created By: lori
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs or substitute
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup flour (see below)
4 cups oatmeal
1 cup raisins
1 cup coconut
1 cup anything else (dates, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds etc)
Preheat oven to 350 °F (325 ° if using darker cookie sheet).
Cream sugars and shortening, then add eggs or replacer and vanilla. Mix flour and baking soda, and add to mixture. Mix well, then add oats. Once mixed, add fruits etc.
Drop by tsp onto greased cookie sheet. Cook for approximately 12 minutes - the top will only be slightly brown. Cool, then enjoy! They will be a crisper oatmeal cookie, and the crumbles make a great trail mix!
To avoid eggs, substitute Ener-G Egg replacer.
To avoid wheat, replace the cup of flour with an alternative blend.
