Healthy Snacking - Sour Cherry & Almond Oatmeal Cookies


Dieting can really be the pits. I am finding at my age {37} that weight takes it's precious time to come off no matter how hard I work out or how much I watch what I eat. So while I have cut back on my favorite indulgences{french fries I am looking at you}. I have continued to find ways to make other snacks healthy, thanks to discovering Drizzle Me Skinny. Her recipes are easy to follow and adjustable to make suitable to your preferred tastes. Her recipes are also so helpful to have with point values for everything for all you weight watcher folks out there. I was inspired by this recipe but tweaked it to flavors that suit my cravings and I have to say this is my new favorite cookie. One is quite satisfying and they are still chewy and sweet like you want a cookie to be without all the fat. 

below is my slightly tweaked version that makes 9 medium sized cookies 

Ingredients

2 tbsp white sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
1 tbsp reduced fat margarine
2 tbsp egg white
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup flour
1 cup oats
¼ cup sliced almonds

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F, spray a large baking sheet {thisgold one never let’s me down for baking the perfect cookie} with PAM baking spray and set aside
Cream your sugars, apple sauce, margarine, egg white and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix in your baking powder, flour, oats, sour cherries & sliced almonds then combine the two until they are thoroughly combined.
Drop cookies by ice scream scooper onto your “greased” baking sheet.
Bake in oven for 14 minutes. When your house starts smelling like heaven you will know they are done :)
