Luke isn’t a sweets kind of guy but he loves these cookies. Loves them. I love them too, of course. They are soft and chewy and the raisins, chocolate chips and oatmeal are perfectly balanced. I am not going to lie, these are not health food. Yes there is applesauce, oats and raisins in there but it is still a cookie. It is a cookie and a good cookie at that. Bake it, eat it, at least try to share it.
Small Batch Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon egg, well beaten
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a small bowl mix flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking powder and set aside.
Cream sugar and butter together until fluffy. Add eggs and beat until mixed. Beat in vanilla applesauce and baking soda. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients. Mix well. Using a spoon stir oats, raisins, and chocolate chips to dough.
Drop by mounded teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheets leaving a couple of inches between cookies. Bake until slightly golden brown, about 12-14 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Makes about 18 cookies.
