oatmeal-raisin-cookies recipe

  And now, a recipe...Oatmeal Raisin Cookies...really good and chewy, but
  will break your teeth if they are cold!  I usually eat them, with a piece of
  fruit on the way home from work (45 minute highway drive), but in the winter
  I put them on the defroster to warm until they are chewy enough.
  3/4 cup light corn syrup
  1/4 cup water
  1 tsp vanilla extract
  2 egg whites (or appropriate vegan substitute)
  1/2 cup brown sugar
  1/2 cup granulated sugar
  2 cups rolled oats
  2 cups oat bran
  1 cup all purpose flour (I use 50:50 unbleached white:whole wheat)
  1/2 tsp baking soda
  1/2 cup raisins
  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all moist ingredients and sugars in a large
  bowl and then gradually blend in the dry ingredients.  Fold in raisins...dough
  is fairly stiff, and gets more so as it sits.  Drop by spoonfuls (I use a 
  soup spoon) onto a cookie sheet lightly sprayed with Baker's Joy.  Bake 15-17
  minutes, or until the edges are browned.  Store in an airtight container...I
  don't know how long they'll keep...they're always gone before they can go bad.
  Even my 6 year old daughter loves them!
