Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Heart Smart Healthy Exchanges p.202
It took a lot of careful testing to figure out how to make a truly delicious healthy cookie, but I bet you'll agree these moist cookies don't taste like diet food! This recipe serves eight, so you can choose hoe many cookies to make from it. I like the idea of eating these medium-size cookies, but if a giant cookie will please you or your kids, feel free to bake 'em up. You may need to adjust baking time, do keep a close eye on the oven.
1/4 cup reduced-calorie margarine 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce 2/3 cup Sugar Twin or Sprinkle Sweet 1/4 cup skim milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 egg, beaten, or equivalent in egg substitute 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup (3 ounces) quick oats 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 cup (1 ounce) mini chocolate chips 1/4 cup (1 ounce) chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray baking sheets with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine margarine and applesauce. Stir in sugar substitute, skim milk, and vanilla extract. Add egg. Mix well to combine. Stir in flour, oats, and baking soda. Add chocolate chips and walnuts. Mix gently to combine. Drop by teaspoonful onto prepared baking sheets to form 24 cookies. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Place baking sheets on wire racks to cool.
Hint: 32 very small, 16 larger, or 8 very large cookies can be made in place of 24 regular-size ones. Just be sure whatever number you choose to bake can be divided by 8.
