I am excited to have Ruthie today visiting my blog. We met at a blog conference and she is really the sweetest person I have met! I absolutely adore her blog, and I especially love her cooking tutorials. Her recipes always look delicious and I can’t wait to try out these cookies!
Hi to all of The Recipe Critic‘s friends… I’m Ruthie from What’s Cooking with Ruthie and I am SO excited to be here with all of you today!
I guess it’s that time of year when we’re all trying to shred a few of those winter pounds… I’ve written about my weight loss story here (part A & part B) AND even though I am a foodie- I try to make my recipes as healthy as possible without sacrificing any of the flavor
These moist and flavorful Healthy Oatmeal Apple Raisin Cookies are a delicious example…
1 C whole wheat flour
2 C whole oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp canola oil
3/4 C sugar (or 1/2 C agave)
1 C applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 apple, finely diced
(I used …) 3/4 C raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon in small mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer combine egg, oil, apple sauce, vanilla in large mixing bowl; mix well. Add dry ingredients to wet, one cup at a time, mixing with each addition. Stir in apples and raisins by hand. Scoop by tablespoonful onto sprayed cookie sheet. Bake for 14 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
You’ll totally love these Healthy Oatmeal Apple Raisin Cookies. They’ll hit that sweet spot without doing too much damage to the waistline. Which is a win-win this time of year! While we’re thinking about skinny desserts here are a couple more you may enjoy…
