Whole Wheat Walnut Oatmeal Raisin Cookies – Healthy and Tasty!

Healthy cookies? I think so! These have hardly any butter, and utilize whole grain oats and flour. In addition, it’s loaded with fruit from applesauce and big juicy raisins! It’s still dessert, but as wholesome as I can make them! Feel good about eating these!

These will look dark from the whole wheat flour, so you’ll have to watch carefully to see when they’re done. I like to push on the top gently to see if there is any “give”. If it is almost firm and slightly browned, it’s time to take them out of the oven. Give them five minutes to cool on the baking sheet before you remove them to a cooling rack, so they’ll hold together. I think they’re even more delicious the next day because the fruit will give them almost a “figgy” texture that tastes rich and delicious!
