Healthy Oatmeal/Raisin Cookies

Total Time

My husband loves oatmeal cookies, so I have created a low fat, low sugar recipe. The addition of raisins adds more sweetness.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix brown sugar thru vanilla together.
  2. Add flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg.
  3. Stir in oatmeal, raisins& walnuts.
  4. Drop on cookie sheets which have been sprayed or I use parchment paper.
  5. (flatten with fork) Bake in 350 oven for about 10 minutes.
  6. (I do not like a lot of sugar so by adding raisins you also add a little additional sweetness) Enjoy!

If you are looking for a fancy-schmancy addition to your decadent Christmas cookie tray, keep looking! If, on the other hand, you are looking for a nice little treat that can go into family lunchboxes and snacks that will provide actual nutrition without guilt, you are in the right place. These will never be a crispy-crunchy cookie, but more soft and chewy, because of the lack of fat. Do not overbake them! They should look pretty soft when they come out of the oven. I used a melonballer to scoop out the cookies, and ended up with 48. The balance of spices was excellent. These are definitely not a very sweet cookies, and this is me, the cut-the-sugar queen saying it, but I found they really grew on me. I did not add the nuts, and I might add more raisins next time. I confess I did also use one whole egg rather than two eggwhites. I don't see the point of cutting out the yolks, because then you just have to find another recipe to use them up. At least, I do, because I can't bring myself to throw out perfectly good food.

I think these are good. Left out the nuts and they are 1 ww point if you get 24 from the batch. To flatten, moisten your fingers with water and press slightly.

As a health nut this is definately a recipe I plan to keep around for a while. I think though that my first batch were a bit dry so I'd suggest to other to consider adding just a bit more applesauce to moisten them up a bit. I made them a bit small but that way I don't feel guilty eating two or three of them between meals as a snack and the oatmeal really fills you up. Very satisfying.
