Low Fat Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

What you need: 

2 cups rolled oats, divided
1 cup hot water
1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice mix
1 cup flour
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup unrefined sugar
pinch salt

What you do: 

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together 1 cup of the rolled oats with the water in a large bowl.
2. Add the spices, stir to combine, and leave this for a few minutes, so that the oats absorb the water. Pour in the rest of the ingredients, stir them in gently, and add more water or oats as necessary to get to a cookie batter consistency.
3. Spoon out onto prepared sheet, and put in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until they are just starting to brown around the outside. Pull them out, let them cool for a minute, then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool fully, if you can leave them that long.
I hope you enjoy these low fat oatmeal cookies, the latest of my healthy vegan recipes.

I think I left the oatmeal sitting too long in the water so it soaked it up too much.  I ended up having to add quite a bit more water, and the cookies came out very gooey, more like a bowl of oatmeal than cookies, even after they baked.  Also, maybe for the same reason, the cookies really stuck to the parchment paper.  I may just not use the paper next time.  I'll try this again and be careful that the oats don't sit too long in the water.  Apart from my problems, I think this recipe has potential!  I'll give it another go sometime.
