Raisin Bran Chip Cookies
I'm always looking for a healthy alternative to sweets. I do have a sweet tooth! I found this recipe right on the back of hubby's cereal box, and it looked worth trying, but tweaking! This is what I came up with. It's worth mentioning that they didn't last a full 24 hours! Oh no...that just means they satisfied that sweet tooth!
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup oil
2 Tbsp water
2 egg whites slightly beaten (I used egg beaters)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups raisin bran
1 cup flour
1/4 cup nuts, chopped (I used pecans)
1/4 cup or less mini semi sweet chocolate chips
Mix the sugar, oil, water, eggs, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add the cereal and flour stirring well. Add the nuts and chips. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely. Store in a tightly covered container. (I skipped that part, they disappeared quickly) Makes between 2-3 dozen cookies.
