Cookies carb-cycle and low fat friendly

Oat Cookies
1 C. Grinded Rolled Oats
2-3 tbs Splenda (I hate splenda, so I use nothing or a tiny bit of stevia)
1 C. Unsweetened Applesauce
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract (or other flavours you want)
1 tsp. Cinnamon
4 Egg Whites
1/4 - 1/2 C. Water (you may need more or less depending on the thickness)
1 C. Rolled Oats (not grounded)

Mix all the ingredients except the Rolled Oats together. Once you have a cookie dough batter fold in the 1 C. Rolled Oats. Place the batter in the fridge for 3 hours to 'rest' then re-adjust the consistancy with water if needed. Make small 'biscuit' balls and flatten them onto a lined baking tray. Bake at 8-10 mins. in a pre-heated 180 degree oven.

Low-Fat Oatmeal Cookies
1/2c splenda (once again, I don't use this - maybe some stevia)
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup wholemeal flour (I HATE flour and NEVER use it - use ground oats instead)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (I don't add this - I HATE using salt!!!)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I add at LEAST 1 tsp - mmmm.... cinnamon)
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
(I add things like coconut/banana/vanilla/rose-water etc for flavours).

1/ Stir together the splenda (if you use it), applesauce and vanilla essence.
2/ Sift together the ground oats, baking powder and cinnamon and stir into the applesauce mixture.
3/ Add the rolled oats, raisins and chopped nuts (if you want them) and stir until combined.
4/ Drop teaspoonfuls onto a lined tray and bake for 10 minutes in a 180 degree preheated oven.

Flat Oatcakes
1 cup oat flour (ground oats) - I use oatbran.
1 tablespoon splenda (once again, I don't use this)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon sea salt (ICK! )
3-4 tablespoons skim milk, plus extra for brushing
1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

Preparation -
1/ Preheat oven to 180 degrees F and line a baking sheet
2/ In a food processor, combine oat flour, splenda, baking powder and salt.
3/ Pulse briefly. Add 3 tablespoons of milk and the applesauce and pulse for 45 seconds, just until mixture forms a ball. If too dry, add a little more milk.
4/ Place dough on a lightly floured work surface. Knead in all but 2 tablespoons of the rolled oats. Flatten and roll into a circle. Brush with milk and sprinkle with splenda (if you want - I obviously do not do this - but, once again, it is in the recipe) and the remaining 2 tablespoons oats and cut into 10 'wedges' (or use a cookie cutter to cut into circles if you want).
5/ Transfer them to prepared baking sheet and bake until firm and lightly browned (about 15 minutes).
