Apple Oatmeal Cookies

For those of you watching your waistline, these delicious cookies are a Weight Watchers recipe. They’re low in fat but high in flavour. Yummy!

Apple-Oatmeal Cookies


1 1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats, toasted until lightly browned
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 apple, peeled cored and coarsely grated
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup raisins + 2 teaspoons dark raisins (I didn’t add raisins)


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F; spray 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray (don’t spray if sheets are nonstick).

2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.

3. In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, cream the brown sugar and butter until pale and fluffy. Add the apple, egg and vanilla; beat until combined. Add the oats mixture; stir to blend, then stir in the raisins.

4. Drop the dough by tablespoons onto the baking sheets, forming 12 cookies on each sheet; flatten with the back of a spoon. Bake until lightly browned, 12-15 minutes. Cook completely on a rack. Store in an airtight container.
