Low Fat Recipe
No raisins or add-ins distract from the delicious oatmeal in these cinnamon-spiced low fat oatmeal cookies.
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup canned applesauce
2 tablespoons 1 percent low fat milk
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons quick rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer on medium speed to mix sugar and butter. Mix until well blended, about 3 minutes.
Slowly add egg; mix on medium speed 1 minute. Gradually add applesauce and milk; mix on medium speed, 1 minute. Scrape sides of bowl.
In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Slowly add to applesauce mixture; mix on low speed until blended, about 2 minutes. Add oats and blend 30 seconds on low speed. Scrape sides of bowl.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
Bake until lightly browned, about 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from baking sheet while still warm. Cool on wire rack.
