Oatmeal Cookies

Comment on this recipe

One recipe makes 2 dozen. Cookies have a moist, cake-like texture. I most generally make three recipes. You can buy a large yogurt which is 3 cups. There is no flour or oil in this so it is good for you.

Ingredients

1 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1/2 cup brown Splenda
2 tablespoons Smart Balance (margarine)
2 egg whites
1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup dried fruit (cranberries or blueberries)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, combine the yogurt, Splenda and Smart Balance. Mix until light and fluffy; set aside. Beat egg whites in a small bowl until soft peaks form; fold into egg mixture. Stir in oats, dried fruit and cinnamon until blended. Drop dough onto cookie sheet by heaping teaspoonsful. Press to flatten. Bake 20 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen.
