Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies

I needed to pack some snacks for the boys to have at school and realized that the only thing I had in the house that would qualify as a healthy snack was popcorn. What’s wrong with popcorn? Nothing, but they have been eating a lot of it lately and I think they were getting pretty tired of it, so I decided to make them some cookies that also happen to be on the healthy side.

Ingredients:
3/4 c. butter
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
1/2 c. honey
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. applesauce
1 c. flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. cloves
3 c. oatmeal

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Bake 10-12 minutes. Mix butter, sugars, vanilla, egg and applesauce. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Drop teaspoon on greased cookie sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes until firm.

Did I change anything? The recipe originally had white sugar which I changed to honey. I think I also accidentally put in twice as much baking soda. The cookies turned out fine though, so either way I am sure you’ll be okay.

What did the family think? Well, they’re healthy and there isn’t any chocolate in them, so our youngest didn’t like them, but I knew that would happen before I even made them. I figured it was worth a try though.
