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!
