Our lemon oaties are an easy recipe that cook in 10-minutes. These lemony, flavor-filled treats are the perfect change-of-pace from the same-old-thing.

What You'll Need

  • 5 tablespoons stick margarine
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, beat the margarine, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg whites, and lemon peel until light and creamy. Add the oats and flour; mix until just blended.

  3. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 1-1/2 inches apart onto the baking sheets.

  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden.

  5. Remove from the oven and let stand for 3 minutes. Remove the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share! you ladies live that shallow, that you have to give this site/test kitchen heck over a lousy 10 calories, Good Grief don't you know life is short........

I appreciate any Bakery recipe for Diabetes. It is necessary for us to make our own Bakery items so we can use Truvia in place of sugar. Like Spice Girl I will also use more Lemon Extract for more Lemon punch when I take my first bite and with a sip of Coffee it is oh so Good !!! Thank You !

A good hearty treat & easy to make - will add more lemon zest next time for a bolder taste.

Who cares. The butter was not counted BECAUSE it is up to the diabetic to choose the poison, ie.. I Can't Believe Its Not Butter, Heart Smart, etc ....
