Healthy Cookies!

Almost every night after dinner, JJ says he wants something sweet. Tonight was no different. I was ready to make some cookies, but then I realized I had no eggs. I decided to just make up a recipe and see how it went. They came out SO well! JJ said they're the best oatmeal raisin cookie (besides the really chewy, big fat ones) he's ever had!

Low-Fat/Low-Cal Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

1 6 oz. cup of yoplait light yogurt - boston creme pie flavor
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp. molasses
1/4 cup skim milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 cup flour
2 cups quick cooking oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease baking sheets.
In a mixer, combine yogurt, sugar, molasses, milk, and vanilla. Add in cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Beat for 10 seconds to combine. Add in flour, beat for 5 seconds, add in oatmeal, beat for 10 seconds to combine. Use a spatula to fold in raisins and walnuts.
Drop in tablespoons full on cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.

They may not look so good, but they're the best 'healthy' cookie I've ever had!
