Olive Oil Oatmeal Cookies

Even when a person is trying to lose weight, it’s good to have little treats or rewards along the way.  Here’s a healthy cookie with fiber and nutrition that makes a nice treat:


  • 1 cup unbleached flour (or whole wheat flour)
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats (can use instant)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar  (or 3/8 cup brown sugar & 2 KAL spoonfuls of  KAL Stevia Powder)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup walnuts

Cream together the olive oil, butter and brown sugar.  Blend in the egg and applesauce.  In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.  Add to the creamed mixture.  Blend well.  Mix in the vanilla.  Add the oats, raisins, and walnuts.  Drop by spoonfuls on baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes.
