The 3-Minute Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

Mmm! Mmm! AWESOME afternoon snack today! :mrgreen:

I basically made a “healthier” oatmeal raisin cookie in the microwave– and it took me just 3 minutes.

Here’s what to do:

Combine the follow ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl:

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/8 cup liquid egg whites
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • Cinnamon to taste

  • Scrape batter off the sides of the bowl and flatten into a cookie shape.
  • Cook in microwave for 45 seconds.
  • Allow to cool and enjoy!

YUM!!! This recipe is definitely a keeper! It’s almost as delicious as the “real deal,” but much more nutritious. And, most importantly, it satisfies my cookie cravings! 😉

  1. What a fantastic idea! This is going in my “recipes to try” file and will be pulled out and used veeery soon, ;-P

    Thanks for sharing! You’re such an inspiration to a healthy balance. :o)

  2. That looks awesome! I can’t wait to try it! I’m sure you could adapt it too to make chocolate chip, butterscotch, apple, or whatever! The possibilities are endless! I posted the recipe on my blog with credit to you, of course:)

  3. Freya-you can get carton egg whites in the UK. Go
    on the Two Chicks website for store listings. Or you can order online from other companies- google will bring them up. 🙂

  4. Hi Tina (and anyone else who is interested!),

    I just wanted to respond to this because two chicks liquid egg white (www.twochicks.co.uk) is mine and my friend’s company. Firstly, thanks so much for buying our product! We have worked really hard so it is great to know people enjoy it (if you have any good recipes such as this one please send them to contactus@twochicks.co.uk and I will put them up on our website).

    Thanks again!

  5. I did a quick recipe for myself on Calorie Count — I swapped the flour for whole wheat and the breakdown came out like this: 150 cal, 1.5 g fat, 27.5 g carbs, 2.7 g fibre, 7 g protein. I swapped Chocolate Chips for raisins and it came out about the same 148 cal’s, 2.5 g fat, 24.3 g carbs, 2.7 g fibre, 7.1 g protein

    Can’t wait to try these!

  6. Funny – I just entered the recipe into SparkPeople’s recipe calculator, using Egg Beaters and whole wheat flour, and I ended up with 187 calories. Hmmmm…..

  7. Awesome. I love oatmeal raisin cookies but don’t bake them because there will be too many laying around. I am definately going to try this. Thanks for sharing

  8. OMG–this is SO good!! Curiously satisfying, though just a few more calories than in my doctored morning oatmeal…really good chew LOL. Thanks, Tina!

  9. I LOVE this recipe! I seriously make it almost everyday as a snack between meals. I sub the flour with my hemp protein powder, and make a mix of raisins and craisins, and sometimes add nuts. Tastes great topped with peanut butter!! 😀

  10. I made this just now and it is really good! Next time I’ll definitely add some chocolate 🙂

    Calorie count according to Sparkpeople (no modifications): 182

  11. I really liked this cookie substitute thingy. I used a whole egg and added a little applesauce to make it a quarter cup, then made two and gave one to my brother. I will definately be making this again.

  12. I made a version of this but with honey instead of brown sugar and dried cranberries instead of raisins. Very filling and tasty. I wish I had the raisins and brown sugar. This recipe is a keeper!
