low fat, less sugar oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!!

11 Dec
this is not my recipe. my roommate found this recipe online and i adapted it a teeny weeny bit. it’s not mine, ,but i’m posting it here because i think its so glorious and you should all know about it. these cookies are chewy and delicious and i love the person who invented them.
This recipe yields 12 cookies:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/4 t cinnamon
1/8 t nutmeg
1 T butter, room temp
1/4 c brown sugar
1/8 cup white sugar
1/2 egg (beat one egg in a cup and then use half of the mixture)
1/8 cup unsweetened or natural apple sauce
1/4 t vanilla extract
1 cup quick cook oats
1/2 c milk chocolate chips
Combine the flour ,baking soda and powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl. In a second bowl combine the butter, apple sauce, egg and sugars.
gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a whisk. fold in chocolate chips (and peanut butter chips if you are me 🙂 )
Spoon onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before baking at 350 for 10 minutes. Chilling before you bake ensures a crispy outside and a chewy inside, it’s a fabulous baker’s secret that I use for every single cookie I make.
so at about 120 calories per cookie, ENJOY!
