Healthy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies
If you are like me, and you love sweets, you’ll love these healthy alternative to oatmeal cookies. All the ingredients are healthy: the oats, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, apple, walnuts, raisins and cranberries. The only not-so-good ingredient here is the brown sugar as it adds extra calories, but it’s OK to indulge once in a while. I eat only 2 cookies a day so it’s perfectly fine. You may also put less sugar if you so desire. They are great to take with you on-the-go as a snack; or for fast breakfast with tea or coffee.

½ cup oil
1/3 cup grated apple (skin off)
¼ cup chopped walnuts
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups rolled oats
½ teaspoon salt
