Name: Amount:
oat bran (dry, uncooked) 1 cup
orange juice 0.75 cup
+ 1 Tbsp applesauce, unsweetened 1 cup
canola oil 2 Tbsp
honey 1 cup
firmly packed brown sugar 0.33 cup
eggs 3 large
vanilla extract 1.50 Tbsp
grated orange rind or 2 tsp orange extract 1 Tbsp
whole-wheat pastry flour (or 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat and 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour) 3 cups
baking powder 1 Tbsp
baking soda 1.50 tsp
nonfat dry milk 1 cup
oats (quick-cooking or old fashioned) 2.50 cups
nuts 1 cup
raisins 1 cup
ground flax seed (opt) 1 cup

Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat non-stick cookie sheets with cooking spray.


Mix together oat bran and orange juice in a small bowl and set aside to soak for 10 minutes.


Meanwhile, combine applesauce, oil, honey, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and orange rind in a large bowl, using an electric mixer, until smooth.


Add together flour, baking powder and baking soda. Sift over applesauce mixture.


Add the soaked oat bran and remaining ingredients to the large bowl and mix thoroughly with a strong wooden spoon.


Drop by slightly heaping tablespoons 1-inapart. Bake 2 trays at a time, stagger trays 1 to the left and 1 to the right, to allow air circulation around each outer edge.


Bake until lightly browned or 12 to 14 minutes.
