Great cookie, I used blueberry applesauce and chocolate chips. The applesauce keeps them healthier, moist and the blueberry flavor came through just a tad in the cookie. I may try a new flavor next. yummy cookies

Good Oatmeal Cookies

by C. Chrissy , Littleton, CO on Mar. 2010

I made these yesterday and I liked them. I am used to oatmeal and raisin so these were a nice change. I used mini chocolate chips though and it felt like the chocolate was taking over the cookie. Maybe less next time.

I made a few changes in this recipe. I used sweetened cinnamon applesauce and reduced the brown sugar to 1 cup. Also I reduced the granulated sugar to a 1/4 cup. They turned out good and tasted great. Always a favorite!
