Applesauce Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies
This recipe makes: 30 cookies

Preparation time : 10 minutes
Cooking time : 12 minutes

vegetable cooking spray
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins

Cooking Instructions
1. Heat the oven to 375°F. Lightly spray two baking sheets with the cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and both sugars together. Beat until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the applesauce, egg and vanilla and mix until blended about 2 minutes. Add the flour to the applesauce mixture and mix well. Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in the oats and raisins.

4. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets about two inches apart.

5. Bake until slightly golden, about 10 to 12 minutes.

6. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and cool on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove the cookies and cool completely. These cookies can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container for up to two weeks.

This is my first attempt at really filling snow-stomping winter cookies. I doubled the recipe but used 3T. soy margarine and 2/3c applesauce. I also put in about 1/3 cup nuts and 2/3c dried fruit. I would love to put safe chips in these but can only find mint flavored choc. chips. Anyway I might fiddle with this and make them more granola bar like and less cookie like. I used to eat trail mix while working in winter and this is my substitute. So with 33 grams of fat from the margarine and 28 from the nuts and maybe 15 from the oats divided by 60 cookies equals 1.3 grams per cookie but that doesn't seem right. Oh well either way I think they are safe and you don't have to put nuts in.

IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!
