Healthful cookies are quick and easy

The cereals and fruit in these whole-wheat apple cookies make them a healthful snack to satisfy a sweet tooth. The cookies are very quickly made and call for easy-to-find ingredients.


1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

2 eggs

1 cup uncooked, quick-cooking oats

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

3/4 cup chopped unpeeled apple (1 whole medium-large apple, cored)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat all ingredients until well mixed, occasionally scraping the bowl.

Drop by teaspoonfuls, 1 inch apart, onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately remove cookies to wire racks; cool. Makes 36 cookies.
