Monday’s typically my most dreaded day of the week. Monday’s signify the start of a new week, having to wake up early again, and not being quite sure what you’re going to walk into at work BUT it also means that there are lots of leftovers from experimenting in the kitchen, thus making this Monday much better. As this is the month of oatmeal, I’ve been playing around with oats. Click here for the great benefits of oats!
Looking around in my kitchen pantry and found lots of great ingredients to make these delish Craisin Oat Bites.
They are low calorie, and so good you won’t want to stop at one!
Craisin Oat Bites
Makes 25 cookies
1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
3T of egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup whole wheat fiber
1 1/2 cup oats
1 1/2 tsp stevia
1/4 cup maple sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie puree
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix together pumpkin puree, egg whites, and vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients. Stir in the wet ingredients until mixed. This will be a very thick dough, so if it looks drier than typical cookie dough, that’s okay!
4. Using a tablespoon, scoop dough out onto a cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.
