These oatmeal cookies are not like the usual. They are soft and cake-like. They are my very favorite. It is best to eat them all the first day.
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour 3 eggs
1 cup whole wheat flour 1 cup brown sugar
2 cups quick oats 1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons cinnamon 2/3 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/4 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped dates
1 cup raisins
Mix oats, flour, cinnamon, soda, and salt. Beat eggs in large bowl until foamy. Add sugars, applesauce, butter, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add flour mixture. Beat on low. Stir in dates and raisins. Drop by tablespoons onto lightly greased cookie pan. Bake 18 min. at 350 degrees. Eat them all the first day, as they don't seem to be as good after that.
