Cookies are great snacks. They provide quick energy and also contain some beneficial nutrients. Many cookies contain a lot of processed sugar and saturated fat, but oatmeal raisin cookies are some of the healthiest cookie types which you can find.
You have the opportunity to add nutrition when you are making oatmeal raisin cookies yourself. By using whole-wheat pastry flour rather than refined white flour you will add more dietary fiber and complex carbohydrates.
In addition, by cutting back on butter and substituting some of it with applesauce, you will slightly alter cookies’ texture, but it will add minerals and vitamins and reduce the number of calories per serving. If you reduce added sugar and use more raisins for the natural sweetness you will get healthier cookies. Make oatmeal raisin cookies for a quick snack and your kids will love them. You can also make them when you don’t have a lot of time since it takes only 26 minutes in order to bake these delicious cookies.
