How to make oatmeal cookies:

  2. In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats, gluten free flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk to mix.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, peanut butter, applesauce, and vanilla until smooth.

Do you have Weight Watchers info for these cookies? 

I do! I've been doing the Weight Watchers Freestyle program for quite a while now and these are a great treat for WW. Each cookie (assuming you get 18 cookies per batch) is just 2 Freestyle Smart Points. I love that I can indulge a bit and have a sweet treat without wrecking my progress on Weight Watchers. 

If you make cookies that are bigger or smaller you'll need to use the Weight Watchers online recipe creator to recalculate to get the accurate points. You will also need to do this if you make changes to the recipe ingredients! Even small changes can make a big impact on your overall points in a recipe so be sure to check for yourself if you have questions or concerns.

How many cookies does this recipe make? 

This oatmeal cookies recipe makes 18 cookies. That could change depending on how big or small you make your cookies. If you like smaller cookies this recipe will be fine with the adjustment just be sure to check them frequently until you see how long they take to finish cooking.

My cookies aren't chewy, they're too hard! 

You have to be super careful not to over-bake these cookies. Oatmeal cookies in general can stand to be under baked a bit and they can finish cooking on the sheets when you pull them out. You want them to stay a bit soft and chewy so that they're the perfect combination of crispy edges and indulgent middles! 

If your cookies are coming out too hard or crunchy the whole way through that is a good sign they've been over-baked.
