This a pretty good recipe with a little modificattion. You DEFINITELY need to add a bit more flavor- 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tspn salt, 2 tspns of cinnamon and I added a pinch of nutmeg(1/4 tspn)and some raisins. They turned out tasty and wholesome. I also substituted a bit of the butter for plain yogurt to reduce the fat further and used 1/2 whole wheat flour. I think if you want to you could even reduce the sugar just a little too. Good recipe as healthy alternative without losing flavor (if you remember these modifications above :)

People often forget to calculate sugar intake when they're thinking "healthy." Even non-diabetics need to watch their processed sugar inatake. If you really want this to be a healthy recipe, make sure you're using home-made or "natural" applesauce - regular store-bought applesauce has processed sugars in it. I'd cut down the brown sugar, too, although I know that takes away some of the YUM factor! You could try a natural sweetener like honey or apple juice concentrate, or use Stevia. Honey is great when you're baking with whole grains because the whole grain binds to the honey sugars and digests it differently - your body doesn't realize it's sugar. Just a few thoughts. Great cookies.


Surprisingly delicious and wholesome after reading some of the reviews on these cookies! I was looking to use up some applesauce and oatmeal and have now discovered a healthy cookie, that even my pickiest child likes! I did use cinnamon applesauce instead of plain and about 1 tsp. cinnamon instead of the 1/2 tsp. the recipe called for, as well as 1/2 tsp. vanilla (since so many people said the cookies were bland) The results were 24 very nicely sized cookies and delicately sweet. Very fluffy and a bit like cake. Moist and not oily! The only thing I will do next time is add raisins.
