Low Fat and Fat Free Cookie Recipes

Fat Free Oatmeal Cookies

*these are soooo good*

Blend in blender until creamy:

  • 1.5 bananas
  • 1/2 c. fat free, no sugar added, natural applesauce
  • 2tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar (or honey or brown rice syrup)

Sift together:
  • 1 scant cup of Whole wheat flour
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash nutmeg
  • 1-2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)


Directions:

  1. (preheat oven 350)
  2. mix dry and wet. Stir in 3/4 c. oatmeal (the regular cereal type)
  3. stir in 2 tbsp raisins or whatever else you want (optional but delicious, I have used all kinds of dried fruits, pomegranate and cranberry is my husband's favorite. I also have used dark chocolate chips and almonds which is my favorite.)
  4. Drop by generous spoonfuls onto cooking-sprayed cookie sheet (or one covered with aluminum foil).
  5. Bake at 350 for 20-30 min or until just browning. (without the oil they take longer to bake than you think!... check them though after 15 min to see how they are doing)

Ingredients
  • 1-1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup prune butter
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3/4 cup finely grated carrots
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins


Directions:

1. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, and cinnamon, and stir to mix well.
Add the Prune Butter, honey, and carrots, and stir to mix well. Stir in the
raisins.

2. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Roll the dough into 1
inch balls, and place 1-1/2 inches apart on the sheet. (If the dough is too
sticky to handle, place it in the freezer for a few minutes.) Using the
bottom of a glass dipped in sugar, flatten the cookies to 1/4 inch thickness.

3. Bake at 275 degrees for about 18 minutes, (275 is correct), or until
golden brown. Cool the cookies on the pan for 1 minute. Then transfer the
cookies to wire racks, and cool completely. Serve immediately, or transfer
to an airtight container and arrange in single layers separated by sheets of
waxed paper.
