Recipe For Healthy Cookies

I decided to make some high protein cookies for DH's lunch box. Any suggestions for something that's not loaded with fat and sturdy enough to be in a bag in a lunch box?

Thanks,

Here is a recipe that I have developed from an old recipe I had used for about 45 years. I just made a few changes to make it low fat,high fiber, and sugar-free.

Sugar Free Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup Unsweetened Applesauce

1/4 cup olive or canola oil

1 whole egg plus 1 egg white

3/4 cup Lowfat Buttermilk

1 cup whole grain flour

1/4 cup self rising flour

1 1/2 cups oatmeal

1 cup Splenda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup Psyllium seed husk *

3/4 cup seedless raisins

1/2 cup chopped almonds, or any desired nuts

* I use Walmarts Equate brand Fiber Therapy, but if you need a completely sugar-free cookie, use Konsyl ® which is sugar free and available at WalMart or Walgreen's

You can omit or reduce salt, if your sodium is restricted.

Combine applesauce, oil, egg and egg white, and buttermilk in a large mixing bowl.

Combine all the dry ingredients as well as the raisins and nuts in a separate bowl and mix well. If raisins are clumped together, rub them into the dry ingredients with your fingers to help separate them. Combine with liquids and mix thoroughly by hand. Drop by tablespoon onto greased cookie sheets. Dip a fork in water and press tops down to flatten cookies. They will rise in baking, but will not spread out. Bake at 400º for 15 minutes. Remove to cooling rack. This recipe will make 36 cookies which is 12 servings.

3 cookies = one serving.
