hempified oatmeal raisin cookies

my hiatus in blogging has been due to a number of factors...enjoying the summer, and eating a diet of primarily kitchari lately being the main ones. i made these cookies the other day and they are amazing, probably the best oatmeal raisin cookies i've ever had...and i've mashed up the recipe to include some hemp goodness in these!

1 c. soy margarine
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. evaporated cane juice (or white sugar of your choice)
2 t. vanilla extract
2 T. hemp milk (soy, rice or other vegan milk will do too)
6 T. apple sauce

1.5 c. unbleached white flour
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon

2 c. oats
1 c. raisins
1/2 c. hemp seed nuts

pre-heat oven to 350. beat margarines and sugars together. add in remaining wet ingredients and mix well. combine dry ingredients (flour to cinnamon in list above) in a separate bowl, then mix them well into the wet ingredients. then stir in oats, raisins and hemp seed.

place lumps of dough (~1 inch diameter) on greased baking sheet. these spread pretty well, so you don't need to press them down unless you prefer a much crispier cookie. bake 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned. repeat with remaining dough.
