What if I told you that you could eat this entire batch of cookies for only 260 calories – 8 grams of fat, 37 grams of carbs (8 grams fiber), and 11 grams of protein?
Consider this recipe a sneak peak into one of my most popular eBooks, The Healthy Cookie Cookbook. The cookbook contains tons of healthy cookie recipes, so you can always eat the entire batch with zero guilt!
These cookies would make the perfect healthy breakfast, afternoon snack, or guilt-free dessert. Plus, they are gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and vegan-friendly if you use vegan protein powder!
Iced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
The whole batch (all 9 cookies): 260 calories – 8 F / 37 C / 11 P
2 tablespoons coconut flour (14g)
2 tablespoons gluten-free quick oats (14g)
1/4 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (7g)
1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar (4g)
2 stevia packets (or 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar-free sweetener)
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce (30g)
1 teaspoon coconut oil (5g)
1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk (15ml)
1 1/2 tablespoons raisins
Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl (for vegan option: use vegan protein powder or omit). Add all wet ingredients except almond milk and stir to combine. Slowly add almond milk until you reach a thick cookie dough consistency. Add raisins. Form dough into 9 balls and flatten to desired thickness (they do not spread while baking). Bake on a parchment lined or greased baking sheet for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown on the edges. Allow to cool and drizzle with optional healthy icing (recipe below).
Healthy Icing (adds 35 calories – 3.5 F / 1.3 C / 0.3 P):
1 teaspoon coconut butter (5g)
1/2 packet stevia (optional)
Melt coconut butter, and stir in stevia if desired. Drizzle over cooled cookies. Enjoy!
