Oatmeal-Raison Cookies - Healthy and Tasty!

Yield: 24 cookies

Oatmeal raison cookies are, for many, the second best cookie after Toll House chocolate chip cookies. And healthier.  But still loaded with sugar and fat.  Not this version.  It is every bit as tasty, but also healthy! Even naturally gluten-free!

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 large whole egg3
  • 4 egg whites (you can use the prepackaged liquid egg whites)
  • 2 cup ripe avocado, cubed
  • 2 medium-sized very ripe bananas (yellow with some black spots)
  • 1  cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1  tsp. salt
  • 1  cup raisins
