Oatmeal Graham Cookies

I did a bit of an “alteration” on my usual Oatmeal Cookies.  First off, I was worried I wouldn’t have enough oats and second I knew for a fact I didn’t have a full cup or raisins… so, I improvised!  And they taste pretty good if I say so myself!

This is what I started out with, and I had plenty of oats!

The first thing I did was to combine the melted margarine with the brown and white sugars until fluffy.

The other issue I had was we obviously had a very “egg-y” weekend because I was down to only 1 egg!  I decided to try something I had seen online a few times and make my own egg substitute.  I mixed together 1 Tbsp. Melted margarine, 2 Tbsp. water and 1 Tsp. Baking powder.  I wasn’t expecting it to fizz, but it did, and it seemed to work out just fine when the cookies were all done.  It at least didn’t affect the taste at all, just maybe caused them to be a little bit flatter than they normally are.

I added the egg and egg substitute to the batter and mixed it well.

Next I added the flour, graham crumbs, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice and ginger and again, mixed it well.

When this was mixed, I added the oatmeal, raisins and toffee bits and mixed it until it was well combined.

All I needed to do now was to drop by heaping tablespoons onto my prepared cookie sheets (Note: lined with aluminum foil, dull side up) and pop them in the oven.

Here are my Oatmeal Graham Cookies fresh out of the oven!
