A cookie a day...

JJ's favorite cookies are oatmeal raisin. I had some raisins on hand so I decided to make him some. I wanted to make something low-fat, low-cal, and I found this recipe on the sun-maid website. Overall, they were good, but a bit dry.

Low-Fat Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup white whole wheat flour or whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup fat-free vanilla or plain yogurt
2 tablespoons canola oil or corn oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/3 cups uncooked old-fashioned oats or quick-cooking rolled oats
1 cup Sun-Maid Natural Raisins

HEAT oven to 350 F. Cover 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
COMBINE flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt together in a small bowl.
COMBINE brown sugar, yogurt, oil, egg and vanilla in a large bowl. Add flour mixture to make a blended dough.
STIR in oats and raisins.
DROP mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.
BAKE for 10-12 minutes until very lightly browned. Do not over bake.
SLIDE cookies from parchment paper onto countertop to cool.

Makes 40 cookies. (I made 32, they're pretty small too)

Adding a little applesauce to them might make them less dry. Thank you for the recipe, always trying to find low fat, low calorie food!
