  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 6-oz. can frozen apple juice concentrate
  • 3 cups uncooked regular or quick oats

Put egg, juice concentrate, apple sauce, raisins and vanilla into a blender or food processor. Blend to break up raisins, then let stand 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl mix oats, flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Blend raisin mixture briefly then add to oat mixture with melted margarine.

Mix well. Drop cookie batter by the tablespoon onto a lightly-greased cookie sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Scoop onto a wire rack to cool. You can freeze these cookies. Makes 36 cookies.
