I received this recipe this month in my Clean Eating Magazine newsletter. I tweaked a few things to make them my own and my kids LOVED them!
Olive oil cooking spray
3/4 cup white whole wheat ﬂour( I use King Arthur flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ﬁne kosher salt
1 tsp cinnamon, ground
1/4 tsp nutmeg, ground
1/8 tsp cloves, ground (I omitted the cloves because they can be overpowering)
1 cup Sucanat (I used 3/4 cup agave & just 2 Tbsp. of applesauce)
6 tbsp canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 large egg whites ( I used one whole egg and one egg white)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup unsweetened raisins, dried cherries, dried fruit of choice or a
combination (large pieces coarsely chopped) ( I used dried cranberries)
1. Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly mist 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
2. In a medium bowl, combine ﬂour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer or hand-mixer, combine Sucanat, oil, applesauce, egg whites and vanilla
and mix on medium-high to blend well. Add ﬂour mixture and mix on low until just short of combined.
Add oats and dried fruit and mix until just combined.
4. Arrange 2 tbsp-sized balls of dough with hands or spoon on prepared baking sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart.
Flatten each ball slightly to make a cookie shape. Bake for about 12 minutes, until lightly golden.
(I cooked them about 2 minutes less) Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
