  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, fructose and egg whites until smooth. Stir in the applesauce, apple juice concentrate and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and, if desired, salt; stir into the applesauce mixture. Finally, mix in the oats and chopped raisins. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are firm to the touch and lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on the cookie sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely. When cool, store in an airtight container. I like to keep mine in the refrigerator.

Make these cookies and took them to work as a test not telling anyone that they were sugarfree. They were a hit with everyone.

These cookies tasted kind of like sponges so I made some icing using two tablespoons of sugar substitute, a teaspoon of almond extract, 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract, and enough skim milk to get it to a drizzley consistency. The icing really helped pep them up.

Excellent recipe. I used 2 tablespoons of maple syrup instead of fructose syrup. Also added more raisins...a generous 1/2 cup, 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg and cloves. Definatly will make again!

I have tried a number of *sugar free* cookie recipes, and this by far is the best. I followed the recipe as is, but after the first batch came out of the oven, decided to flatten out the dough before baking, this made them more cookie than cake looking. Next time I will add another tablespoon or two of fructose, but other than that wouldn't change a thing.

I was looking forward to these as a healthy snack, but the recipe as-is was more cake-like than cookie-like. I added more oats than were called for and added nutmeg and allspice, as well as extra cinnamon. I'll make them again but I would suggest using more sweetner. . . I like that they retain their moisture for a long time. Thanks, applesauce!

My dad LOVES them!! And my picky 3 year old girl too! I substituted dried cranberries and added a couple ozs. chopped walnuts and they turned out beautifully!

Made these last night, offered them to the Super Bowl crowd who ate every last one. They raved about my "oatmeal apple cookies". Just finished baking another batch in which I added some nutmeg and will surely be considering this to be one of my best cookie recipe.

The cookies came out like cake and was not sweet enough.
