Sugarless Chocolate Chip Cookies
Who doesn't have a fondness for cookies? Somehow, they transport me to my childhood. Whether they were Tollhouse chocolate chip made by my mother or snicker doodles or rice crispy treats at grandma's house, cookies were always a welcome comfort dessert.
I stumbled across this basic recipe for applesauce cookies from delish.com and made several revisions. Instead of the required nuts, I just poured in some mini chocolate chips. Must eat chocolate......yummmmmmm! That's my new meditation chant phrase!
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup quick oats
3/4 cup raisins
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup nuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In another bowl put your wet ingredients, stirring well. Blend the dry with the wet.
Spoon the dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool and eat. Makes about 3-4 dozen.
