If you are looking for a healthier cookie recipe, these oatmeal cookies are not only low in fat but use less flour than other recipes. And they are a perfect treat for kids who have allergies to eggs or diary.
This recipe comes from the family of our very own Kevin Moffitt at Utah Valley Pediatrics.
- 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/3 cup light olive oil or vegetable oil
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 cups raisins
- 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
- 3 cups oats
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- In a bowl, mix together the applesauce, oil, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
- Mix the ingredients from both bowls together a little at a time.
- Mix in the raisins, walnuts, and oats.
- Drop the dough from a teaspoon onto the cookie sheet. Either use a silpat or parchment paper or grease the cookie sheet well. (Note: It will be much easier to get the cookies off a silpat or parchment paper).
- Bake for 10 to 13 minutes depending on size. They should be slightly undercooked.
