Low Fat Apple-Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by elastigirl

This recipe is the result of my tinkering with other lowfat oatmeal cookie recipes in an effort to make them moister. The addition of milk results in a softer, cakier cookie. Great for snacks or even breakfast!

this recipe also works well as mini muffins. I left the pecans out and baked them for 1-2 minutes longer. Very good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together oats, milk, chopped apple, and pecans in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Mix together brown sugar, egg whites, applesauce, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and apple pie spice and stir well to combine.
  4. Add oat mixture and stir well (the cookie dough will look like lumpy oatmeal).
  5. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets sprayed with non-stick spray or lined with parchment paper. Flatten each cookie slightly with a fork or spatula.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
