Raisin Oat Cookies

Raisin Oat Cookies

This recipe is from the ‘Honestly Healthy for Life’ recipe book, by Natasha Corrett and Vicki Edgson.

Natasha and Vicki suggest approx. 4 times the amount of some of the following ingredients, however I found that this made too many and they went to waste. If you want more you can always bake another batch – it’s quick and easy!
