Ingredients

    1/2 cup Smart Balance butter for baking, softened
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
    1 egg white
    1/4 cup applesauce, unsweetened
    1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
    1 cup old fashioned oats
    1/3 cup wheat bran
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 orange, zested and juiced
    1 tablespoon orange juice

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the butter in a medium mixing bowl. Cream the butter using an electric mixer. Slowly add the sugars and continue to mix for 2-3 minutes.
Add the egg white and applesauce, and mix just to combine.
Sift the dry ingredients together in a separate mixing bowl. Add to the wet ingredients, along with the juice and zest. Drop the dough one tablespoon at a time onto two cookie sheets lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Bake 10 minutes or until the bottom of the cookies are just browned. Cool on a wire rack.
Serves 18 (2 cookies per serving).

    Diabetics need to control carbs, including sugar.
    One diabetic serving is 15 carbs, so at 18, this recipe is, indeed diabteic friendly.
    It is very old school to believe that diabetics cannot consume sugar - they just need to control the amount.

    The comments "These sound good", or "I may make these", or "Sounds tasty" etc. are not much help in deciding if I want to try the recipe. It seems like the only way one can rate a recipe is if it has been made and eaten. - 2/21/11

    I have been diabetic for 25 years and am always looking for good recipes. This one was great. I did use Splenda for the granulated sugar but used real brown sugar. Just the right amount of sweetness for me. Thanks! - 2/22/11

    I have been diabetic for 52 years. Guidelines are constantly changing. Currently as long as you control for number of carbs and your total calories, you will do fine. This recipe would fit into a diabetic meal plan. What you can't do is eat the 18 servings in one day!! I plan on making these. - 2/20/11

    I substituted milled flax seed for the oat bran and the cookies were wonderful. - 2/20/11
