My kids have been putting in their requests for more treats. This time I got a request for oatmeal cookies.
But, I started thinking why plain oatmeal cookies? When my kids eat oatmeal for breakfast they don’t eat plain oatmeal. They tend to eat apple cinnamon or maple.
So……why not duplicate that in a cookie. I really wasn’t sure how these would turn out, but let’s just say they were all gone by the next night! I took that as a compliment.
Have them for breakfast or as a snack – the choice is yours!
This recipe makes 18-20 cookies.
What you’ll need:
- 4 tablespoons (or 1/4 cup) unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup sucanat
- 1/4 cup organic wildflower honey
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup unbleached whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 3/4 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray or lay down aluminum foil.
- In a medium mixing bowl, mix unsweetened applesauce, sucanat, honey, and egg together.
- Then add in the cinnamon, baking soda, and flour. Mix well, but do not overmix.
- Last add in the oats. Mix well, but do not overmix.
- Use a tablespoon to scoop cookie mix onto cookie sheet.
- Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
- Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
