Really Good Low-fat Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Life is good with a raisin oatmeal cookie! These are wonderful after-school snack or take-along cookies made even better because they are very low in fat and sugar. A little yogurt and oil substitute for butter, and there’s not too much brown sugar. Nutritionals clock in at about half the fat and calories of most traditional raisin oatmeal cookies.  When I first tested this recipe Sun-Maid sent to me, called ‘Really Good Raisin Oatmeal Cookies’, I was surprised how ‘really good’ they were. I reduced the sugar a little and think they’re even better now. Get the recipe HERE.

While you’re getting this yummy cookie recipe, check out nutrition information from RaisinYourNutrition. There is a very good article with the latest news about eggs and health; another about ‘good foods vs. bad foods‘ and the confusion with gluten-free foods; and the new food labeling law which was supposed to go into affect in 2018.  The current government administration has delayed it, but many companies are moving forward anyway so you’ll be seeing the  new label on food packages soon.  It’s all good, and will make it easier to compare foods and decipher labels.

    Life is indeed good with an oatmeal raisin cookie! I’ve always been more of an oatmeal raisin gal than chocolate chip–and these look really good. I like the bar form!

    Raisin Oatmeal Cookies have always been my favorite cookie; I like their chewy-ness (sorry chocolate chips). And with less sugar and fat?! I will definitely make these for my book group that I’m hosting Monday evening.
