Healthier Cake Mix Cookies

I have used the cake mix recipe for making cookies for a couple of years now. I am always looking to make old recipes healthier. Here is what I have come up with to add fiber and to cut the fat and calories.



  • 1 box of cake mix (any flavor)
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 cups of dry quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup of chips if desired (chocolate, peanut butter or white chocolate)


Mix ingredients together. Drop by walnut-size balls onto ungreased cookie sheet, flatten slightly with bottom of glass. Cook for 15 min in a 350 degree F oven. Cool on wax paper. Makes 4 dozen cookies.

Do I have to use the peanut butter or chocolate? I am diabetic and my husband hates peanut butter.

The chocolate and peanut butter are marked "if desired" in the recipe. I made this recipe yesterday with a carrot cake mix and no chips, and baked it in one pan as cookie bars. It is delicious. Thank you to Judi for sharing this one.
