No Added Sugar Fruit and Oatmeal Cookies
No Added Sugar Fruit and Oatmeal Cookies, a sugar free cookie with healthy ingredients, the perfect holiday cookie recipe idea!
Preheat the oven to 325 and prep baking sheets for nonstick. I like parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, use a fork or a whisk to mix together the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon.
Next, in a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter with the butter with the two sugar alternatives until creamy. Then add the dry ingredients from the first bowl one half at a time, stirring gently between additions. Lastly, beat in the egg and the vanilla extract
Stir in the oatmeal gently by hand and then fold in the dried fruit
You can roll the dough into 1-1 ½″ balls or use a tablespoon to place the cookies on the prepped cookie sheets. Makes sure the cookies are spread apart as they will flatten while baking. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until the cookies begin to brown. Allow them to cool on a rack for added crispness.
I mentioned that the texture of this cookie depends on the oatmeal and the sugar alternative that we use. For best results, use a granular sugar alternative such as granular Splenda that measures one to one with sugar.
Also mentioned is that you should use Rolled (old fashion) oats should be used in this recipe rather than instant or quick varieties.
Lastly, when you transfer the cookies from the mixing bowl to the baking sheet, I suggest using a tablespoon and dropping the cookies onto the sheet. Leave a couple of inches between the cookies as they do tend to spread when they bake.
