Very Low Fat, Delicious Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These are wonderful! They are soft and yummy, but best eaten within a day of baking; because of their very low fat content, they don't "age" well. Enjoy! Each cookie is 77 calories and <1 g fat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the raisins, water, egg whites, and molasses.
  2. Stir until well mixed.
  3. Add the sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla.
  4. Stir to combine.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the flour, nonfat dry milk powder, baking powder, and cinnamon.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Slowly add the flour mixture to the raisin mixture.
  8. Stir in oats.
  9. On a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray, drop batter by teaspoonfuls.
  10. Leave 2 inches between each cookie. They do spread a little bit.
  11. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until edges are light golden-brown (I baked mine for 7.5 minutes to keep them very chewy! Yum!).
  12. Remove cookies from oven when they are done.
  13. Place cookies on a wire rack to allow them to cool.
  14. Enjoy without guilt!

These turned out great! I halfed the amount of sugar because 2cups seemed too much for me and they turned out sweet enough. I also used milk instead of water and didn't add powdered milk (didn't have any). Also added some dark chocolate chips. Great recipe!

whoooa! good cookie alert!
these are awesome. im making them right now and the first batch just came out. gah. my house smells soooooo good. delicious=check.
i didnt have any powdered milk so i did like another Foodie who commented and substituted that for the 1 1/4 flour. i also added mini chocolate chips and honey/less sugar. i agree with most on here, they came out looking the same as i put them in. so shape them how you want them. i added coconout to half the batch, super yummy.
awesome recipie. thanks!

These turned out so soft and chewy. I didn't add the raisins and I use splenda instead of the sugar. They're great for a low fat cookie. They didn't spread out for me. The way I put them in is the way they came out. Next time I'll try less sugar. I don't need that much. These are amazing in the evening with a coffee or tea.
