oatmeal raisin cookies

My oldest, Ashley, has a cookbook.  It is Kit's Cooking Studio.  Kit is an American Girl doll and Ashley loves all American Girl dolls.  She pulled out this book the other day and has been itching to make something from it.  We decided to make the oatmeal raisin cookies.  Of course, we changed it to fit our new whole foods lifestyle.  We used freshly ground whole spelt flour and sucanat in place of both brown and granulated sugar.  We also made half of them with chocolate chips instead of raisins because she doesn't like raisins.  The cookies are flat, as all my spelt cookies tend to be, but they kids are sure enjoying them!  They aren't quite as sweet as most cookies, but I think the less sugary food we eat the more we will appreciate that.
