This recipe is:

2 cups (500 mL) coarsely crushed bran flakes

2 cups (500 mL) rolled oats (preferably large flake)

2 tbsp (30 mL) ground flaxseed

1 tbsp (15 mL) ground cinnamon

1/4 cup (60 mL) SPLENDA® Brand Brown Sugar Blend

1 cup (250 mL) unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup (125 mL) nonfat plain or vanilla yogurt

1 tsp (5 mL) pure vanilla extract

1 large egg

1/2 cup (125 mL) skim milk powder

1 tsp (5 mL) baking powder

1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda

1/2 cup (125 mL) dried cranberries

1/4 cup (60 mL) coarsely chopped dried apricots

1/2 cup (125 mL) slivered almonds

1/4 cup (60 mL) sunflower seeds


Position the racks in your oven to divide the oven into thirds and preheat to 350˚F (180˚C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine bran flakes, rolled oats, flaxseed, cinnamon and SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend; stir to combine. Set aside.

In another large mixing bowl, combine applesauce, yogurt, vanilla, egg and skim milk powder; whisk until blended.  Add baking powder and baking soda; mix until combined. Gradually add bran flake mixture to applesauce mixture.  Add dried cranberries, apricots, almonds and sunflower seeds; mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Let stand for 5 minutes before removing from pans. Cookies will firm up as they stand. Store loosely covered.


For a hint of chocolate, substitute dried apricots with 1/2 cup (125 mL) chocolate chips.
