With dried apples and caramel candies in every bite, our less-than-100-calorie oatmeal cookies give you the flavors of fall year-round.

Ingredients

  • 6.75 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped dried apple slices
  • 3/4 cup caramel bits or 16 small soft caramel candies, chopped

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. 2. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a bowl; stir well.
  3. 3. Place sugars and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture; beat at low speed until just combined. Fold in apple and caramel bits.
  4. 4. Drop dough by 2 teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Flatten balls slightly with hand. Bake at 350° for 9 minutes. Cool on pans 3 minutes. Remove cookies from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
