Yummy Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients

3 cups Oats
1 cup Flour
1 cup Brown Sugar
6 individual packets of Splenda/Equal
1 cup Olive Oil
4 Egg Whites
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 cup Raisins
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Directions

Mix all dry ingredients and break up the sugar well. Pour into the mix all the wet ing. and mix well. Mixture is sort of sticky. Drop spoonfuls of mixture on cookie sheet (Use parchment paper for easy clean up!) and shape into a cookie by giving it a little pat on top. Put into a 375 degree F oven for about 15 min. Remove from oven let them cool and then sprinkle them with powder sugar.


World's Greatest Low-Fat Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
3/4 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp of baking soda
3/4 tsp of vanilla essence
1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce
1/3 - 1/2 cup of sugar or healthy substitute
3/4 cup of dry oats
2 Tbs olive oil
1/4 cup raisins
1 egg
1/4 cup of nuts or seeds (optional)
1/4 tsp of salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a cookie sheet either with non-stick spray or a parchment paper.

Sift the salt, cinnamon, baking soda (and salt if you are using) into the flour in a bowl.

In the mixing bowl, beat olive oil together with the sugar. Add in applesauce and egg and beat well. Now add in the flour mixture and beat on medium until a semi-stiff dough forms. This dough will be very slightly sticky. At this point, add the vanilla essence, raisins and nuts (if you are using) and mix well into the dough. This step will require a little more strength because the dough is pretty stiff due to the whole wheat flour. But just try to incorporate the raisins into the dough.

Drop by tablespoonful about 3 to a row. Flatten to about 3/4". Just keep in mind that this dough will barely flatten out when it's baking so what you see is what you get. Just don't flatten it too thin that it will turn out to be crunchy like a biscuit instead of crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. You will probably get about 15 to a standard 9"x13" cookie tray. Bake in the center of oven for about 10-12 mins. When it's done, remove from cookie tray and cool on a rack. It is very good just out of the oven and still slightly warm!

Note:

The finished cookie will look "uncooked" on the inside but that's because of the color of the whole wheat flour together with the applesauce so don't be afraid to take a bite.
