Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Tips

Because these use less better, it’s crucial not to over-bake them if you want them chewy. The applesauce makes them moist, but if overcooked they will become dry so if you’re not sure if your oven runs hot it’s probably best to take them out a minute or two earlier.

Once they come out of the oven, transfer them to a wire rack so they cool completely before storing.

I made the serving size 2 cookies, because I can bet you won’t eat just one!

These Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are moist and made light by swapping out most of the butter for applesauce which works great!

1 cup all purpose flour1 tsp baking powder1/2 tsp baking soda1/2 tsp salt1/2 tsp ground cinnamon2 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature1/2 cup sugar1/2 cup unpacked brown sugar1 large egg1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce1/2 tsp vanilla extract2 cups quick oats3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F; line two baking sheets with parchment paper or use a silpat.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

In a large bowl, with a mixer, cream together the butter and the sugars on medium speed.

Add the egg, followed by the applesauce and vanilla extract.

Working by hand, stir in the flour mixture and the oats until just combined and no streaks of flour remain; stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop heaping tablespoonfuls (approx 1 tbsp each) of the dough onto prepared baking sheets, flattening each cookie slightly (I forgot to do this).

Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until cookies become light brown at the edges.

Let cool on baking sheet for 3 or 4 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container so you don’t eat them all in one sitting!

Makes about 30 cookies roughly 1 tbsp each. Splenda Lovers: Substitute all the brown sugar with 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend, and all the white sugar for 1/4 cup Splenda sugar blend. Points remain the same.
