Oatmeal Raisin Blueberry Cookies

Oatmeal Raisin Blueberry Cookies

On 5 Apr 2019, in

By Kelsie Knerr, RD 

These Oatmeal Raisin Blueberry Cookies are sweet and chewy and can be satisfying after dinner dessert. I think of these cookies as more like baked oatmeal bites than your typical cookie texture. You can make this recipe into granola by cutting the applesauce to ½ cup or for a more moist cookie increase the applesauce to 1.5 cups.

No Added Sugars: These cookies get their sweetness from applesauce, raisins and blueberries, as well as a non-nutritive (meaning containing no calories) sweetener called sucralose. The naturally sweet fruit also provides fiber, vitamins and minerals.

Low-Fat: By using only the egg whites and not the whole eggs and by using applesauce instead of oil this recipe ends up being very low in fat.

Low Sodium: These cookies also do not have salt, baking powder or baking soda which makes them extremely low in sodium.

Tip: Without the leavening agents (baking soda and/or baking powder) and fat, these cookies bake a little differently than your typical cookie, they keep their shape through the cooking process so I recommend lightly pressing down the cookie dough prior to putting them in the oven.

Yield: 24 cookies
