Low Fat Baking Mix Oatmeal Cookies

Total Time

This recipe is adapted from razzledazzlerecipes.com. I suggest using WaterMelon's low fat baking mix (Low Fat Bisquick Substitute) to make these these cookies healthier. (Thanks, WaterMelon!) I also usually substitute unsweetened applesauce for all or part of the butter or margarine.


  1. Heat oven to 350*.
  2. Mix brown sugar, margarine or butter, vanilla, and eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake until light brown, about 10 minutes.

Five Stars WITH some adjustments.... I ran out of flour and all I had was this bag of low-fat baking mix that my grandma gave me... SO to make this recipe taste a little better I used 1 FULL cup of unsalted butter instead of 2/3cup, I also added 1/2cup white sugar and I put in a pinch of salt and instead of 1/2cup oats (come one, who makes oatmeal cookies with 1/2 cup of oats?!) I added two full cups (the extra butter helped with adding more oats.) Oh, and I added 1/2 cup extra baking mix to make them softer... And they turned out GREAT! My version is obviously less healthy... but come on, these are cookies lol!

I made these cookies today and they are great ! I used the applesauce and 1/2 cup brown sugar ( the other 1/2 cup was splenda) and they are sooo moist ! My kids loved them and even I didn't feel guilty eating them. I will definatly make these again and would probablly add some pecans just to have that extra crunch. They are very cake like. We loved them !
