VERSUS: Oatmeal Raisin vs Chocolate Chip Cookies

18 Aug

Chocolate Chip vs Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal raisin cookies just sound healthier than other cookies because both oats and raisins are healthy, natural ingredients. However, the other ingredients of oatmeal raisin cookies, namely butter and sugar are still prevalent.

Features
The ingredients of an oatmeal raisin cookie include butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, oats and raisins. Oatmeal cookies, like other cookies, contain large amounts of sugar and butter. While these ingredients can be enjoyed in moderation in a balanced diet, they do not have nutritional value. According to the USDA, people should limit their consumption of fats and processed sugars.

Benefits
Oats and raisins are considered healthy ingredients. One serving of oats contains 4 grams of fiber, which aids in proper digestion. Raisins are dried grapes and also contain dietary fiber, as well as calcium and small amounts of vitamin C.

Comparison
While oatmeal raisin cookies seem healthier than chocolate chip cookies, the truth is they are remarkably similar nutritionally. Oatmeal raisin cookies contain slightly more fiber and protein than chocolate chip cookies, but they also contain more overall calories and sugar.

Considerations
Store-bought oatmeal raisin cookies are traditionally made with large amounts of sugar and butter. Baked cookies at home make them healthier. Using less butter and a sugar substitute will reduce calories. Adding more raisins and oats benefits their nutritional value.

Expert Insight
Tosca Reno – “A cookie, no matter how clean the ingredients, is still a cookie. It is meant to be a treat…”
