Notes

Oatmeal cookies provide a way to have a treat and gain vital nutrients, too. While they aren’t as nutritious as unprocessed foods like fruits and vegetables, they provide more nutritional benefits than many other cookies — especially if you make them yourself or choose prepared cookies carefully.



Because oatmeal cookies contain oats, which are a whole grain, they provide fiber. While they vary by brand and ingredients, two oatmeal cookies provides about 1 gram of fiber, versus zero fiber found in sugar cookies. If your oatmeal cookies have raisins, that amount may increase to 1.5 grams. For even more fiber, use whole-grain flour, which contains around six times as much fiber as white flour. This is the difference of a gram or two of fiber per serving versus only trace amounts.

Because of the added fiber, oatmeal cookies have a lower glycemic index than other cookies. This means they’re less likely to spike your blood sugar levels, so you’ll have better energy levels and appetite control after eating them. They’re still sweets, however, so if you’re particularly sensitive to sugary fare, consider preparing oatmeal cookies with less sugar or using the natural noncaloric sweetener, stevia, instead. You can also pair oatmeal cookies with milk — or other protein- or fiber-rich foods — to lower the glycemic impact.


For many people, oatmeal cookies just aren’t right without raisins, which may be a good thing. Only one in 10 Americans consume the recommended 1-1/2 to 2 cups of fresh fruit per day, according to a 2017 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report. And young adults, men and adults living in poverty tend to lack fruit in their diets. Because it is more dense, 1/4 cup of dried fruit equals one 1/2-cup serving of fresh fruit.
