8 Easy Steps: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Servings: 12
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons raisins, chopped
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons whipped butter, room temperature
  • 2 packets natural no-calorie sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. Place chopped raisins in a small bowl, and cover with warm water. Soak until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain excess liquid.
  3. Meanwhile, in a blender or food processor, pulse oats to the consistency of coarse flour. Transfer to a medium-large bowl.
  4. Add all remaining ingredients and seasonings except raisins. Mix until uniform.
  5. Stir in half of the raisins.
  6. Evenly distribute mixture into 12 mounds on the baking sheet, about 1 1/2 tablespoons each. Use the back of a spoon to spread and flatten into 2-inch circles.
  7. Top with remaining raisins, and lightly press to adhere.
  8. Bake until a knife inserted into the center of a cookie comes out clean, 16 to 18 minutes.
