I gave this recipe a makeover when I was struggling with my blood sugar during pregnancy. These cookies are not very sweet, but are great for when you just need a little something.
- 1⁄4 cup applesauce
- 1⁄4 cup canola oil
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup egg substitute
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1⁄4 cups old fashioned oats
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts
- 3⁄4 cup raisins
- Mix applesauce, oil, and sugar. Add egg and vanilla, mix well.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
- Combine wet and dry ingredients. Stir in the raisins and nuts.
- Drop spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
Sooooooo yummy! My last batch is cooling right now and this is the best healthy cookie recipe yet! My 3 yr old took one bite and said, "Yummmmmmm!" I totally agree! I changed up the recipe just a bit: I added about 1/2 tsp cinnamon, omitted walnuts, added 1/8 cup wheat germ and 1/8 cup milled flax seed (for more healthy goodness), and I only had 1 cup of raisins. It would probably be really good with diced apples instead of the raisins too--I'm going to try that next time I make them. Thanks so much for posting! It was just what I was looking for!
