Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies will help kick off Christmas cookie season this year. They’re a healthier option that are full of flavor!
Yay for cookie season!! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas season calls for all of the cookies and baked goods. During the holidays, I love baking things for my Bud and my coworkers. It brings me so much joy when people enjoy my food!
To kick off the season of baking, I decided to make these oatmeal applesauce cookies. The original recipe from Amy’s Healthy Baking calls for whole wheat flour, one egg, agave and raisins. Because I changed up the recipe slightly, I opted for all purpose flour because I didn’t want the cookies to be too dense. Applesauce makes for a great substitute for eggs and also makes the recipe just a tad bit healthier (if cookies can be considered healthy). I also used maple syrup instead of agave because I wanted a deeper, more rich flavor. Finally, I totally removed the raisins because I’m not a fan of raisins in cookies.
