These Oat Raisin Cookies are 4 Smart Points per portion on Weight Watchers Blue, Green and Freestyle plans. They are 3 SmartPoints per cookie on the WW Purple plan. As well as being a tasty and very satisfying low point treat, they are also easy to make. They freeze very well if you want them out of temptations way!
Since I started my Weight Watchers journey I have tried to be sensible and not eat too many snacks between meals. I no longer buy packets of biscuits as they were (one of) my biggest downfalls.
If I ate one biscuit, I would find myself eating the whole packet or at least half the packet.
Thankfully my mindset has changed since starting Weight Watchers and I no longer find myself craving packets of biscuits so often.
However, every now and again I do really fancy a cookie and these Oat Raisin Cookies just hit the spot. They are sweet, buttery and what is more they are filling.
I really don't think I would be able to eat my way through the whole batch even if I tried. One is enough to fill me up and satisfy the cravings nowadays.
These Oat Raisin Cookies also freeze really well.
If you make the batch of 12 cookies and don't trust yourself not to eat the whole lot in one sitting just pop them in the freezer and take them out one at a time when needed.
Although raisins are quite high points I think that the extra sweetness that they bring justify the additional points.
