Instructions

  1. Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat Becel® sticks, cream cheese and brown sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg, yogurt and vanilla until blended. Gradually beat in oat mixture just until blended. Stir in raisins and carrot.
  3. Turn dough onto waxed paper and form into four 7-inch-long logs. (Dough will be sticky). Wrap tightly and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°. For 2 servings, slice off four 1/2-inch rounds from log, then refreeze remaining dough until ready to bake. Arrange frozen cookie slices on baking sheet. Let stand 10 minutes.
  5. Bake 8 minutes or until edges are golden and centers are set. Cool 2 minutes on wire rack; remove from sheet and cool completely.
