On a rainy day, what better is there to do then bake yourself a big batch of cookies! I love oatmeal raisin cookies, so my thought has always been, if I am going to make them I might as well put my healthy spin on them. There are not any eggs, oil, butter, or cow’s milk in them as well. Enjoy!
Low-Fat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies:
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- cinnamon (however much you like)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup light vanilla soy milk
- 1/2 cup light vanilla yogurt (I used Carbmaster from Kroger)
- 1/4 cup golden raisins
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix your dry ingredients (flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, salt) until evenly incorporated. Add your yogurt, soy milk, and vanilla. Mix until all of your dry ingredients are coated. Add your raisins and chocolate chips; mix until evenly spread into the batter. Grease your baking dish, and make about ping-pong ball sized spoonfuls of dough. They do not really expand, so you don’t have to work about them being too far away from each other. Each tray of cookies will take about 11 minutes to bake. Don’t over bake them! The recipe makes about 18 total cookies, each being about 85 calories! Enjoy!
