Oatmeal Cookies (Low Fat, Sugar-Free)

I adapted this recipe to make it a bit healthier, cutting out both butter and sugar. These yummy cookies a filled with fibers and it won’t make your blood sugar levels go crazy..

Ingredients:

50g oats

50g wheat bran (or a gluten free type of flour)

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

215g unsweetened apple sauce

no-calorie sweetener equal to 200g sugar (I use 3 1/2 tsp liquid sweetener)

1 tsp vanilla extract

45g egg whites

1 (100g) ripe banana

optional add-ins:

“Chocolate Chip” Cookies: 3 tsp (20g) raw cocoa nibs or

“Trail Mix” Cookies: 1 tsp (6g) pumpkin seeds + 1 tsp (20g) almonds, finely chopped and  1 tsp (15g) raisins

In a bowl combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Whisk together (or sift together). Mix apple sauce, sweetener and vanilla extract together. Add egg whites and beat until just combined. Now add in the flour mixture and beat until dough forms. Use a spoon to mix in 1/2 mashed banana plus any add-ins of your choice.
Spoon batter onto a prepared baking sheet. Top with a slice of banana from your remaining banana. Bake at 175 C for about 20 minutes.
Makes 10 cookies, “Trail Mix”: 70 kcal each, “Chocolate Chip”: 56 kcal each.
