Oatmeal Cinnamon-Raisin Cookies

By Sidra Forman

This is a cookie you can feel good about! The recipe makes just four cookies, ensuring there aren’t leftovers, and they’re low in sugar and fat. If you desire, bake one cookie at a time; you can store the batter in the refrigerator for at least a week.


4 cookies
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes


3/4 cup oatmeal
1 Tbsp Smart Balance™ Fat Free milk
1 Tbsp melted Smart Balance® Buttery Spread
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch salt
2 Tbsp raisins


1. Preheat oven to 350°F.


2. Combine all the ingredients except the raisins in a food processor. Pulse on and off six times, until well combined and the oatmeal is in small pieces. Mix in raisins.


3. Spray a cookie sheet with Smart Balance® Cooking Spray. Divide cookie batter into four equal pieces. Place batter on cookie sheet and flatten the cookies with the palm of your hand, moisten your palm if the batter sticks.


4. Bake until golden brown on the edges, about 12 minutes.
