Applesauce Cookies

Cookies take us back to childhood.  You could run and play, then come inside and have a cookie with a glass of milk.  These cookies will take you back to that time again and you won't have to feel bad about eating one.  With flax seed, oats and applesauce these are something you can enjoy and know you are sticking to your healthy living goals.

Applesauce Cookies

3/4 cup spelt flour (you can substitute all purpose flour)
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup coconut sugar (you can substitute can sugar)
2 egg whites or 1 whole egg
2 cups steal cut oats
1 cup organic unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup raisins

In a small bowl combine flour, flax, baking powder, allspice and salt.  Stir to combine and set aside.  In another bowl beat butter and sugar together till creamy.  Add egg whites and beat well.  Beat in flour mixture.  Stir in applesauce, oats and raisins.

Drop by tablespoon fulls onto a prepared cookie sheet.  Bake in a 375 degree oven for 11 to 15 minutes.  You want the edges to be lightly browned and the cookie to be soft in the center.  

I use coconut sugar for reasons noted in my April 18 post.  I use spelt for reasons noted in my March 6 post.  If you check out those posts you will understand the reasons for using those ingredients.  You can make your choice on what to use.  Just go eat a cookie!
