We are having snack issues at our house. There are three certain children who think it must be bathed in sugar in order to qualify as a good snack. I found this recipe and tweaked it a whole lot. It is now snack time approved in our house.
2 cups brown sugar (I used 1 cup of Splenda/ Brown Sugar blend)
2 cups rolled oats
1 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup prune puree (you can use baby prunes for this. I soaked 5 prunes in water and then blended them up until they were a smooth consistency)
5 tablespoons water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray cookie sheets with non-stick spray or line with parchment paper. Scoop about 2 TBSPs of dough and place in balls on the cookie sheet. Flatten them down, as they do not flatten in the oven. (Yes, I know they are sticky!) Bake for about 9 minutes. Do not overcook or the cookies will be dry. This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies.
These are one of those cookies that taste the best at room temperature.
They are not the prettiest cookie you have ever eaten, but they have Sadie's approval, and that is saying something.
