Sugarfree Oatmeal/Carrot Cake cookies w/raisins

Submitted by: LIZBETHMSR

Introduction

Sugar free, wheat free, low fat! Sugar free, wheat free, low fat!
Number of Servings: 48

Ingredients

    * Carrots, raw, 1.5 cup, grated
    * Egg, fresh, 2 large
    * Crisco Pure Vegetable Oil 1/2 cup
    * Applesauce, unsweetened, 1/2 cup
    * Quaker Long Cooking Oatmeal, 1 3/4 cups
    * Baking Soda, 1 tsp
    * Cinnamon, ground, 1 tsp
    * Salt, 1/2 tsp
    * Raisins, 1 cup (not packed)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350

In one bowl add mix dry ingredients:
1 cup plus a bit more long cooking oats - ground into flour (I use my food processor)
1/2 + a bit more whole long cooking oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unpacked raisins

In another bowl mix wet ingredients:
1 1/2 cups grated carrots (or 1 cup grated zucchini works too)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

Add dry ingredients to the wet and mix until blended completely. Let sit for about 5 minutes until the liquid is absorbed.

Drop by measured tablespoons onto parchment lined cookie sheets (I use the Airbake pans - so cooking time may vary)
Bake for 15 - 18 minutes until firm and golden brown in color. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack (I do this immediately)

Makes at least 48.

I have children and adults alike lining up for these cookies - a great way to get some veggies into those persnickidy eaters!

    These don't remind me much of carrot cake and as others said it is not a killer sweet cookie. I would like to sweeten more with Splenda, but am not very good at altering recipes. Thanks for recipe - it is a very pretty cookie. I got 33 cookies - following measuring directions. - 4/4/12

    Don't expect something as sweet as an oatmeal cookie or a carrot cake but when you're trying to cut down on sugar these really fill the craving for baking and baked goods. - 5/22/08

  • I just made these today. I was very worried that they wouldn't turn out well, but they did! they are small but surprisingly good. For whoever makes this recipe, don't get discourged by the look, KEEP COOKING! you wont be disappointed. I think I'll take some to work. :D - 7/31/13

  • I replaced the ground oats with ground almonds, put twice as much cinnamon (2 tsp) and less oil (2tbsp), baked for 20+min. Tasty! (I'm used to low/no sugar snacks) - 3/11/13

  • Excellent recipe! I followed directions and got 32 cookies, rather than 48. This changed the macronutrient breakdown. Based on a 32-cookie yield per batch, I came up with the following numbers (per cookie): Calories: 68.6, Fat: 4.03 grams, Carbs: 7.6, Protein: 1.20 - 10/28/12
