    Default Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe with Prune Juice?


    I'm looking for a classic oatmeal cookie recipe made with prune juice in
    it. I was only able to find one called a healthier oatmeal apple cookie,
    which had apples in it. They tasted okay, but weren't very sweet and
    were very chewy. They also called for a lot of flour which you could
    taste in the finished product. The recipe I'm looking for would have
    been an older recipe. Or does anyone know how I would go about
    substituting it into a recipe? Thanks!

    Are you sure it was prune juice and not prune puree? A number of years ago,
    maybe 20, I was forced to endure a super low-fat diet for a while. There
    was a wide variety of baked goods that called for either applesauce or
    pureed prunes to replace the fat.
    A search for low-fat oatmeal cookies prunes will turn up a few choices; for
    example,

    Your average oatmeal cookie does not contain much liquid added. You
    should add prune puree instead of juice. The reason you'd make an
    oatmeal cookie with apple sauce, bananas, or vegetables is to reduce the
    amount of fat, sugar and eggs. It's a classic vegan trick. Just use that
    recipe and substitute a bunch of prunes that have been processed in a
    blender.

    It ain't gonna look much like an oatmeal cookie and you might have to
    give up your daytime job cause consuming all that fiber seems like a
    dangerous thing to do. That's the breaks.

    Just find a oatmeal raisin cookie recipe, and substitute diced prunes
    for the raisins. You can probably even double the amount.

    Prune juice isn't going to work. It should work in a cake recipe.
