Question Heart healthy cookies


I need help in developing a cookie bar that is soft to chew and made with the following ingredients:

Finely grated Apples as the only sweetener (maybe a few raisins) NONE IF THOSE FANCY POWDERS.
No added oils
No added sodium (sodium is deadly) that’s baking soda….
Flax seed meal and oat bran for high fiber (most important part)
Maybe ALOUND FLOUR for delectability and texture.
Possibly yogurt or dry milk
Rolled oats could help hold it together without eggs (never use egg yolks, only whites)

And of course vanilla and cinnamon (cinnamon helps control hunger) coriander?
My first attempt was about half inch think and had too much egg white, it cooked to fast.

Try it and tell me what to do?

I made some of these with only the almond meal and lemon juice and egg whites....they were so heavy and expensive that I think I should use some non glutinous flour with the almond flour, but what? Is pastry flour the only thing that will work?

Question Am I the only on that cares?

I think I may not get any help here, but I tryed apple sauce and rolled oats with egg whites agian....I think the secret is in the drying, slow cooking long enough for the inside to dry so that it is not mushy.

maybe add enough rolled oats to keep it dryish also.

maybe the fiber in flax seed meal will help gell the batter.

I'm sorry you feel you are getting no help, but maybe none of us have the knowledge you are seeking.

I cook heart healthy, but not as stringent as your parameters are. All my forays in to baking heart healthy have been failures. I rely on moderation/portion control in the way of baked goods.

Question moisture content

ok I remembered that water does not work in cookies. so how about egg whites, maybe a little milk; or just moleasses.

diabetics would be better off with a little oil that anything else.

well rasins would be the best sweetner.

That (raisina) depends on the diabetic. They send my bg's over the moon. so moderation and splenda help. You need to use your bg monitor and check at least 2 hours after eating. If bg's are 120 or less your fine. I'll look and see if I can find something that will help you.
