These cookies are soft, not crunchy and have just the right amount of sweetness. This recipe does not make a whole bunch, only about 16 to 20 cookies. That's a good thing for me because I would just eat more if I had more.

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?
Here is a recipe that is made at George Williams College Camp in Wis.
OATMEAL + COOKIES
3 sticks butter or margarine
3/4 cups sugar
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cimmamon
4 cups oatrmeal
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup raisins
1 cup craisens
1 cups chocolate chips
Blend buttter and sugars until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Mix together flour,baking powder, salt and cunnamon. Add to butter mixture, mix well. Add Oatmeal, mix well. Fold in raisins, craisins and chocolate chips.
Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet.
Bake 350 degree for 20 minutes.
(I do not know how many it makes, but is large batch)
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.
