packed brown sugar
I made some changes: 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/6 cup white sugar, ½ cup applesauce, 3½ TBS butter (made really soft, almost melted, in the microwave), 1 cup flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, maybe 1/4 tsp cinnamon (allergies in the house), one good shake of ground ginger, 1 cup oats, ½ cup Craisins, and about 1/4 cup Smarties (Canadian candies: like M&Ms, but MUCH better!). My daughter and I like to eat cookie dough (we SAMPLE it! It has to be good dough to make good cookies!), so it's nice that I don't have to worry about eggs. Oh, I also used parchment paper instead of greasing the sheets. It took them about 12 minutes in the oven, and they were a thicker, softer cookie. The ginger was a nice addition. One bit of advice to people complaining about 'cakey' cookies: Substitute some (or most, or all) of the baking powder with baking soda. Most chocolate chip cookies have soda but not powder, and think of what they turn out like. :) Thanks for sharing, Lucille!
For me, these were pretty bland, but I did make them for my 15 month old who is allergic to eggs & nuts ( omitted the nuts). He liked them. Thanks Lucille, for sharing so that he could have a variety.
I thought this was a great low fat cookie. I halved the all purpose flour and add 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. I also add a little more cinnamon and a dash of ground cloves and nutmeg. I had to flatten my cookies though because they didn't spread as they cooked.
Well, I decided almost 8 months ago to "change my lifestyle" by exercising and eating HEALTHY. Currently, I have lost almost 50 lbs! I made these cookies today and EVEN my unsuspecting 8 yr old son said they were "great". Low fat/lower carb/HEALTHY eating and cooking can be GREAT with recipes like this one.
These were a great cookies for a family on a diet(who loves cookies). I had no apple sauce, but I heated up 2 apples (chopped)in the microwave for 2 minutes with a bit of water and mashed them up with the other ingredientas. It worked great!
I have to say that these are the first cookies I've ever baked that can actually bounce! I thought that not having any butter or margarine in the ingredient list was too good to be true! Sorry...but I thought that these cookies were rather gross.
I thought these cookies were a great snack for those trying to eat healthier. I didn't have any applesauce on hand so I used one mashed banana instead and added a little water to the mixture as it was quite dry once I mixed all the ingredients together. I also used whole wheat flour and all brown sugar. If I added some chocolate chips they may have turned out a little tastier but they are quite good for a mid-morning snack for those watching their waistline. I have an overactive sweet tooth so these are great to satisfy my cravings.
These cookies are really good! They are sweet yet not too sweet =]. My only problem with these is that they dont exactly expand when you put the drops on the cookie sheet...so what i did was mush them down into the size i wanted them to be or else they would seem really tiny.
