Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies
I made gundrops for the boys this summer. There was a cup of applesauce left and I wanted to find something to make.
Six Sisters Stuff posted this recipe in 2013 and I knew the boys would like it and so would we!
This is a soft cookie with lots of apple flavor.
1 cup applesauce ( used sweetened applesauce)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups flour
1 cup oatmeal ( used old fashion oats)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon ( used Saigon cinnamon)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 cup chocolate chips ( didn't use)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
In a large bowl mix together applesauce, brown sugar, butter, and egg.
In medium size bowl mix the flour,oatmeal, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Whisk until everything is combined.
Add the flour mixture to the applesauce mixture. Stir until combined. If you are adding the chocolate chips DO NOT add yet.
Dough should be firm (add more flour if needed).
Fold in the chocolate chips and scoop heaping tablespoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes (until golden).
