I created these delicious low-fat whole wheat molasses cookies last week. I absolutely loved their yummy
flavor and chewy texture. The also have a very nice nutritional analysis. Per cookie: 2.1 g fat, 2.5 g fiber, 8.5 g sugar, 61 mg sodium, 1.5 g protein.
Low-Fat Whole Wheat Molasses Cookies
Makes 17 cookies
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp. non-aluminum baking powder
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2 Tbsp. organic blackstrap molasses
1/2 cup raw sugar
3 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk (I made my own)
1 Tbsp. Earth Balance whipped butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine dry ingredients in bowl. Combine wet ingredients in small saucepan and warm until raw sugar is dissolved. Mix dry ingredients with wet, being careful not to over-mix the batter.
Drop by heaping tablespoon onto lightly greased baking sheet or use parchment paper. Flatten each cookie with the bottom of a class. To prevent sticking either flour bottom of glass or spray lightly with olive oil.
Bake cookies for 15 minutes. Cool completely and store in airtight container to prevent cookies from hardening.
