This is my healthy oatmeal cookie recipe that I used to make for my kids. We called them "Cookie Monster Cookies."

Look for the non-instant nonfat dry milk powder. I use Sanalac. In my area, Kroger carries it. Nestle also makes a whole milk powder that you may find in your grocery store's Mexican section.

Ingredients

How to Make Healthy Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cornell Flour Formula

    1 tablespoon soy flour
    1 tablespoon nonfat dry milk powder (Not the instant granules)
    1 teaspoon wheat germ

    Measure soy flour, nonfat dry milk and wheat germ into the bottom of a measuring cup before measuring each cup of flour in any bread recipe. The addition of these ingredients improves and enriches bread greatly. This formula can also be used with cakes and cookies.
  2. Cookies

    3/4 cup applesauce
    3/4 cup butter, softened
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 cup water or apple juice
    2 cups flour (see Cornell Flour Formula)
    1-1/2 cups oatmeal
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 cup raisins
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk dry ingredients together.
  4. Mix together applesauce, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and egg with electric mixer.
  5. Add remaining ingredients (except raisins) and mix until combined. Fold in raisins with a rubber spatula.
  6. Scoop by heaping spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. (I use a melon baller to scoop up the dough.) Bake for 12-15 minutes (until golden).
