Low-Fat Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

My mother gave me an economy sized container of quick cook oats. Does anyone have a low-fat recipe for oatmeal cookies? I am on Weight Watchers. Or any other creative ways of using the enormous container of oatmeal. It would take my family 6 months to eat it! Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much.

Oatmeal itself is lowfat. We eat it with skim or 2% milk for breakfast as part of our weight loss diet. Most oatmeal cookies will be low fat--just watch what you use for your oil/btter (use a low fat) and don't add in the choc chips@

My mother follows the recipe on the oatmeal box only substitutes Splenda for the sugar. My dad likes them better, not as sweet and great for diabetics.

Use oatmeal instead of bread or cracker crumbs in meatloaf, meatballs etc. You can also grind it finer in a blender or food processor and use like a specialty flour in baking oher than cookies. How about whipping up a batch or two of granola? it can be made low fat too.

Leftover cooked oatmeal is great in pancakes.

There are all sorts of different recipes using oatmeal at the Quaker web site. Not just cookies and that sort.

http://quakeroatmeal.com/qo_quakerKitchen/recipes/index.cfm

They have on the link above where you can filter out just the cookie recipes that are heart smart or ones that are low cal etc.

Preacher cookies use a lot of oameal but really aren't low cal by any means. They are almost like candy.

Oatmeal cake is scrumptious.

Granola uses lots of oats and can be made to be low cal or low fat with the right recipe.

I keep meaning to try it but have not yet is a recipe I keep seeing for Baked Oatmeal. Supposidly even the leftovers are good.

For a different taste in breakfast oats, add a spoonful of peanut butter to the warm cereal. It is yummy. And you can put the uncooked oats into freezer bags and keep it a year or more.

Also, oatmeal is soothing for the skin. Good to use as a facial scrub, or a little in bathwater, or tied in a washcloth in the shower.

I was looking for another recipe and came across this one for Oatmeal cookies on the WW forum. It has applesauce instead of fats and egg white instead of eggs.

We make granola! Lots of recipes on the internet, though I use Tightwad Gazette's w/ the addition on coconut, and cheap nuts: sunflower seeds, pepitas(pumpkin seeds, shelled), and sesame seeds--all bought in bulk. Not exactly low-fat, but filling, and so much cheaper and healthier than processed dry cereal. I've also made scones, muffins, used it in meatloaf, but I find the cookies good, if a bit dry. But making a double-batch of granola can use about 10 cups at once, and it lasts for awhile. We like it on our homemade yogurt, too!
