I’ve been craving oatmeal raisin cookies lately and decided to try to make them somewhat healthier. These turned out pretty good!
- 3 Tbsp light butter, room temperature (I use brummel & brown yogurt spread)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4-1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- scant 2 cups rolled oats (not quick oats)
- 1/2 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350. In a stand mixer or with a hand-held mixer, mix softened butter and sugar until combined.
Add in egg, applesauce, maple syrup, vanilla and mixed until combined.
Mix in 1/2 raisins. You can do this with the mixer or with a spatula or wooden spoon.
Bake cookies for 13-15 minutes at 350. Allow to cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes then transfer to cooling rack.
Made 22 cookies.
