Oatmeal Fruit Cookies

These cookies are made using oatmeal, dried fruit, sugar free fruit preserves, non sugared cocoa powder and other healthy ingredients. I sprinkled a mixture of cinnamon and sugar on top but this is optional. They would also be great with a little powdered sugar topping.

  • 1 tbls sugar free fruit preserves
  • 2 tbls chopped walnuts
  • This mixture makes 14 cookies. Double or Triple if you would like


  • Add all ingredients to a med. sized mixing bowl
  • Mash ingredients together using a potato mashing utensil
  • Form balls using approx 1 tbls mixture or more for larger cookies
