Nutritious Oatmeal Cookies1

Submitted by: NEALSNEWS

Introduction

I'm working at getting an oatmeal cookie that is better for me. Eventually I want to remove the brown sugar and replace it with a natural sweetener and remove the shortening. However, this is my first attempt at making them more nutritious. I'm working at getting an oatmeal cookie that is better for me.

  • I made this recipe without the raisins and it turned out really good. It's a little sweet but still a good treat. - 5/10/09
