Low-fat Oatmeal Cookies
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
I changed the recipe a little. I combined flavored instant oatmeal.I mixed in packs of cinnamon
I changed the recipe a bit. I used honey instead of corn syrup, I used old fashion oat as I had no quick outs, and I put the whole eggs in. Of the three changes, I worried about the oats the most. I think I was correct in my worry. The cookies didn't have much taste to them, except kind of like cardboard. Also, I didn't see a listing of the Nutrition Facts; I can't say if the "low fat" is low enough to keep this recipe.
These are great tasting cookies. I added 1/4 cup of applesauce as someone suggested and I did mix it slowly in my KitchenAid mixer. It had the texture if an oatmeal cake rather than cookies. So I added almost a cup more of flour and about 1/4 cup of oats to thicken it. They baked for 9-1/2 min. My husband likes them and I like them. What could be better? Oh, I know! If everyone I share them with likes them, too!
I am a sweet junkie, a few months ago I got pancreatitis and my whole world changed, no fat, which means no butt, which means not sweets, WRONG, I make these cookies every 3 days and eat them all by myself, they are fabulous, I cut the sugar to 1/4cup brown, 1/4 cup maple syrup 1/4 cup applesauce and add Apple pie and nutmeg spices, the result are amazing, thank you for this great recipe!
I followed the recipe to the tee but added 1/4 cup apple sauce and the cookies came out great and cooked for nine min.but I can't figure out why when you pick them up they feel sticky
Didn't have honey or can't use eggs due to allergies. So bonded the mixture using vegan some margarine and 1/3 cup sunflower oil. Also added a little almond milk and ground mixed spice. They came out really nice. Definitely saving this recipe. Thank you :)
Cookies were delicious! My husband loved them which is a real compliment!! I will try some of the suggestions, one at a time from the reviews so as not to ruin the recipe. Did not have corn syrup and substituted honey, which was fine.
These were pretty tasty ! I was worried about how dry the dough was, but I saw one review that added applesauce. I mixed 1/4 c in before putting in the oven. PERFECT !
We thought these were very good for a cookie with virtually no fat!! My husband is a diabetic so substituted Splenda for the sugar and used white whole wheat flour. I also decided to add 4 oz. of applesauce since there was no oil. Very most, chewy cookie that I've now made four times! LOL, hubby loves them!! Thanks for the recipe! I treasure it!
I have been cooking for over 30 years but only recently have I been baking fat free or as close as I can get. Looked all over for a good oatmeal cookie that keeps its integrity while lowering calories and fat. This one is it! I did change the sugar to brown sugar and the corn syrup to honey. I also used one egg beater and one real egg white as this is all I had. Great recipe. i have always had good luck when using a Taste of home recipe.Thanks
