Lite Almond Butter Oatmeal Cookies

18 Aug

I love to bake, but I typically will “health-ify” a dessert recipe to make it more of a snack for Mike to take to work. I look for recipes that use yogurt or bananas instead of oil or butter or I will substitute applesauce for oil and always reduce the sugar.

These cookies turned out a lot more fluffy than I expected, but they are easy to make, low sugar, high in protein and all around a pretty healthy snack. Enjoy!
