RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1 cup  old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup  chopped pecans or walnuts
1 cup  whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon  baking soda
1/4 teaspoon   baking powder
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1/2 teaspoon   ground cinnamon, divided
1/8 teaspoon   ground nutmeg
2   large egg whites or 4 teaspoons dried egg whites, reconstituted according to package directions
1/2 cup  coarsely shredded peeled apple, such as McIntosh or Cortland (about 1 small apple)
1/2 cup  packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup  apple butter
4 tablespoons  granulated sugar, divided
2 tablespoons   canola oil
1/2 teaspoon   vanilla extract
1/2 cup  diced dried apples

Tip: Look for whole-wheat pastry flour in health-food stores; it gives baked goods a light texture while adding fiber. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 375°F.


Spread oats and nuts on a baking sheet. Bake until fragrant and golden, 5 to 8 minutes; set aside. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.


Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Combine egg whites, shredded apple, brown sugar, apple butter, 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, oil and vanilla in a large bowl; stir until blended. Add the dry ingredients and stir until just moistened. Stir in dried apples and reserved oats and nuts.. Drop the dough by level tablespoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets.


Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon granulated sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Coat the bottom of a glass with cooking spray. Dip the glass into the cinnamon sugar and flatten cookies with it, dipping the glass into the cinnamon sugar for each. Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
