Reduced Fat Oatmeal Cookies – Partner Approved

The Original Mr Butterton

My partner Kevin LOVES cookies and is under the impression that since “oatmeal” is so healthy then “oatmeal” cookies are too. I attempted to explain to him that just because they have “oatmeal” in them, it does make them healthy, all the fat in the butter cancels out the healthy effect of the “oatmeal”. Of course Kevin LOVES butter; he’s the original Mr Butterton. He slathers butter on everything, the more butter the better in his book. Any how, in an effort to reduce his fat intake from butter and feed his passion for cookies I came up with this reduced fat Oatmeal Apple Raisin Cookie recipe.
