These little oatmeal cookies, rolled in walnuts with sugar free jam offer a healthier version of a favorite treat!
- ¼ cup butter, softened
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
- 2 egg whites
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup all-purpose organic flour
- ¼ cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
- 1 egg white lightly beaten
- ¾ cup finely chopped walnuts
- ¼ cup sugar free strawberry, apricot, and raspberry preserves
Beat butter in a mixing bowl, add sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and baking soda and eat until combined thoroughly. Beat in 2 egg whites and vanilla until well mixed. Add flours and then stir in oats. Cover and chill dough for about 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. Shape dough into small balls, about 3/4 inch. Roll balls into the egg white and roll in walnuts to coat. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Use your thumb and press the center of each cookie, not all the way through.
Bake 7-8 minutes, until the edges are golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet. Just before serving, spoon your favorite sugar free preserves into the cookies!
