Low Fat Apple-Cranberry Breakfast Cookies

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 14 mins

A great choice for breakfast on the run, but also good with a relaxing cup of coffee.Originally from Weight Watchers, I've tweaked the recipe to suit my taste. 1 cookie = 2 points (If you omit the walnuts, they are 1 point each.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer; beat until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add eggs and beat for 30 seconds; add applesauce and beat just to mix.
  3. In another bowl, stir together flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda; add to mixer and beat to form batter. Mix in oats. Add apples, cranberries and walnuts; combine by hand.
  4. Coat cookie sheet with cooking spray. Drop batter by heaping tablespoons 1 inch apart. Bake until cookies are lightly browned and firm, about 13 to 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes. Move to wire rack and cool completely. Note: Store leftovers in an airtight plastic bag or container in the freezer.

These were pretty amazing. I used 1/2 cup Splenda brown sugar blend instead of the regular brown sugar. They're cakey, yet chewy. Under the points plus system, these came out to 2 pts . I can't wait to try and make a banana version! Thanks for sharing!

I give this recipe five stars. This is the best "healthy" cookie I have ever tasted. It took me 20 minutes to put it together before work this morning. I used Splenda brown sugar rather than regular brown sugar. My co-workers gave this one a "thumbs up".
