I found this recipe in a Low Calorie cookbook that was written before Low Calorie was truly en vogue. I made these cookies last weekend and the whole family LOVED them. They stay soft, but are best right out of the oven. (They won't stay around long anyway!)

Units: US | Metric
- 1Preheat oven to 325°F.

- 5Add in egg whites and vanilla and mix well.
- 6Now add the flour mixture and beat slowly.
- 7Fold in oats using a spatula.
- 8Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet.
- 9These cookies don't spread very much so you can put them fairly close together.

- 11This recipe yields about 36 medium cookies.
- 12Each cookie has about 70 calories- not too shabby!
