Healthy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

Healthy Oatmeal-raisin CookiesIf 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.


(Makes 20+ cookies)

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
½ teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup raisins and cranberries
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
  2. Mix together oil, grated apple and brown sugar.
  3. Add chopped walnuts and vanilla.
  4. Mix in eggs, one at a time.
  5. Add flour, oats, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Mix well then add raisins and cranberries
  6. Coat the oven tray with cooking spray (ex.Pam)
  7. Form mixture into cookie size patties and arrange them 2 inches apart on the oven tray.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.
