Default 20 Minute, 7 ingredient Oatmeal cookies!!

Hey guys,

I found a recipe on line for flourless oatmeal cookies - and changed it work on Core MUCH to my surprise - it turned out VERY good!! The cookies are much more like muffins (don't expect the chewy cookie texture) - but they are almost like apple cinnamon muffins - and really satisfy the cookie/pastry craving. I don't really have the pre-core cravings - but - there are times when something like this SOUNDS so good - and it was pretty darn good if I do say so myself DO remember to spray your pan with Pam - I had a very new nonstick pan and was able to get the cookies off with a spatula, but it did leave a bit of a shadow of cookie on the pan. If I hadn't used non-stick - I am certain it would have STUCK - so do use non-stick. I forgot to spray with Pam - but the non-stick saved me. There's no fat in these so nothing to keep them from sticking like glue they really do remind me of muffins - and it only takes a few minutes to mix and 12 or so to bake - I was enjoying them in less than a half hour...


1 cup uncooked oats
1/3 cup Splenda sweetener
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 Egg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Drop by large serving spoonfuls onto a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until browned. Cookies are "cake-like" and don't spread much so they can be placed close together.

Makes about 15 large cookies - or maybe 2 dozen regular size (I made mine large)

Thumbs up Yummm!

These sound like they are worth trying. Thanks for the find. It looks like they would be 6 pts. for the whole batch (or 5 if you used egg beater, eh?) I'll have to try them this coming weekend. I have been baking some treats for the family lately, so now it's my turn!! Mama

Thanks guys The thing I like most is that they are 'portable' I am a huge fan of granola bars - but we know those are not core. This is the next best thing for me. I figure about 3 cookies is probably close to a serving of oatmeal and a serving of applesauce. And I'd much rather eat them in this form

The original recipe called for different dried fruits - I dumped those and added the applesauce and the salt. I got lucky I think with the combinations

I'm surprised at how many people have READ this post, but only 2 responded! lol. Guess we have a LOT of lurkers

Go ahead! share away

I was trying to think of a way to make them more cookie-like - but considering I think it's the fat that makes them crunchy - I guess this is the closest "Core" cookie I'll get

Thanks everyone!

I'm thinking of subbing Pumpkin for the applesauce next time - and adding some nutmeg. I just finished the last of the first batch today - with a cup of coffee flavored with splenda Mocha sweetener mmmmmmmmmm awesome dessert!!
