No Butter Chubby Oatmeal Cookie

This soft and chewy cookie is a decadent treat for those who watch their waistline. You can have it with your morning cup of coffee as breakfast or to satisfy your late night sweet-tooth. The recipe calls for brown sugar, but I replaced it with equal amount of date sugar. Date sugar is nothing but dehydrated dates ground into granulated form. It is a whole food, high in fiber, vitamins and minerals. I think it is a great substitute and the best part is you won't taste anything different. And here goes the recipe,

3/4 cup APF/Maida
3/4 cup Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Date Sugar
1/4 cup White granulated sugar
1/2tsp Baking soda
1/4tsp Salt
1 Egg
1/3 cup Canola Oil
1/2tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tbsp Water
How to:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or use foil and spray it with oil.
  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt and oats.
  • In another bowl, break the egg and whisk until frothy. Add date sugar and white sugar followed by oil, vanilla extract and water.
  • Now slowly add the flour mixture into the egg-sugar mixture and blend'em well.
  • Scoop equal amount of the mixture and place it on the cookie sheet. Then gently press it to flatten the mixture and bake'em for 10 mins.
  • Cool completely on a cooling rack before storing.
  •  Serve it as a snack or dessert.
  • Date sugar is available online or in specialty food stores.
  • To make it even more decadent, add chocolate chips, raisin or any dried fruit into the mixture.
