Yield: 48 servings
|¾ cup||Vegetable oil|
|1 cup||Brown sugar; firmly packed|
|2 teaspoons||Vanilla extract|
|1½ cup||Rolled oats|
|1½ cup||Oat bran|
|½ teaspoon||Baking soda|
|1 cup||Raisins; OR semisweet chocolate chips|
|½ cup||Chopped walnuts; OR chopped pecans|
1. Beat together oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add oats, oat bran, flour, salt and baking soda. Stir to mix well.
2. Add raisins [or chocolate chips] and nuts, and blend evenly.
3. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 350 F (180 C); the cookies should not brown very much. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Makes 4 dozen cookies.
NOTES : If spicy cookies are desired, add 1 teaspoon (5 mL) cinnamon, ½ teaspoon cloves, and ½ teaspoon allspice to dry ingredients. Make sure the vegetable oil is fresh and mild. [I would use a newly opened bottle of canola oil.] Formatted in MasterCook 4 by Ellen Pickett <ellen@...> January 1999.
