Keep It Simple – and Delicious – with Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

Moist and delicious, these cookies are a sweet and satisfying dessert, plus they're simple to prepare.

Don’t be fooled by their wet appearance when you take them out of the oven; they’ll harden slightly when cooled, but they ARE fully cooked and ready to eat. And? They are really good for you with no added sugar and plenty of fiber and belly-filling natural oats.
