Our Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe are very delicious and we love that they’re healthy too. It’s just an awesome bonus! We think they are a fabulous cross between a healthy granola bar and a healthy cookie. Today’s healthy oatmeal cookies with applesauce and honey are awesome to toss some into the freezer to enjoy later. They are a perfect snack for the kiddos after school or tuck some of these whole wheat oatmeal raisin cookies into their lunch boxes for school! Enjoy 🙂
Emily’s Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe
You remember Emily’s Chicken Tortilla Soup that was SO good?!?! Well, last week she text me this recipe saying I needed to make them for the blog because they’re amazing!! I knew I’d be giving them a try as soon as possible to share with all of you. We think you’ll LOVE them every bit as much as we do. 🙂
We hope you enjoy these other Healthy Cookie Recipes too!
A few helpful tips for baking at higher elevations:
- If you live 3,000 feet above sea level or more it is considered high elevation and may take longer to cook/bake.
- Adjustments are needed for 5000+ feet and above:
- Reduce baking powder: for each teaspoon, decrease 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon.
- Reduce sugar: for each cup, decrease 2 tablespoons.
- Increase liquid: for each cup, add 2 to 4 tablespoons.
- Increase oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
- Check if it is done a little early.
- This takes some trial and error to get it right for you.
