I love cookies (and I suspect you do to!). I wanted to share a holiday recipe that is healthy, tasty, and something you don’t have to feel too bad about since it doesn’t use butter, flour, or sugar.
- 1 cup uncooked (Quaker old fashioned) oatmeal
- 1/4tsp salt
- 1 egg white (or 1/4 cup egg sub)
- 1/2 cup 100% Pure Pumpkin (canned - make sure it’s not Pumpkin Pie filling)
- 2 packets of Splenda
- 1 Tblsp of cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp almond extract flavoring
Preheat the over to 350. Mix everything together until it’s a good consistency and spoon onto a a non-stick cookie sheet. You can also spray with Pam if you’re concerned about them sticking. Cook 12 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
The entire batch is only 379 calories, Fat: 6.6g, Carbs: 70.7, Protein: 15.6. I usually make 12 cookies per batch – so each is only 32 calories.
This recipe is also very versatile You can substitute the pumpkin for 1 medium mashed up banana. I’ll sometimes add raisins and raw walnut pieces for extra yumminess.
