Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love these cookies because they're a bit lighter thanks to the applesauce that replaces some butter, and they've got some fiber thanks to the whole wheat flower and oats. BUT they don't taste like it!!! You're just going to have to trust me until you try them. But if you can't take my word for it, check HERE for a second opinion. :)


Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from the Sisters' Cafe

1 ¼ cups brown sugar
1 ¼ cups sugar
1 cup butter
1/4 cup applesauce
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
1 ¼ teaspoon salt
2 ½ cups wheat flour
2 ½ cups oats
2 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients and then chocolate chips. Scoop rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. *Makes 3-4 dozen.

**I love oatmeal cookies with butterscotch chips!! (I made some of both, because the hubs likes chocolate chips better.)

These look and sound absolutely amazing! I love using Kamut Khorasan Wheat flour and have been trying to collect some healthy whole wheat recipes that I can try it in :) Thanks for the cookie recipe!

Hi Erica! Just wanted to let you know that I love your cooking ideas and I have been using a bunch of your salad recipies lately. I love having someone else come up with the ideas so I can pull together my weekly menu that much easier!

Wow, these were really delicious! I'm not usually a fan of applesauce substitutes for fat, but they turned out great. I love your blog, Erica, and I'll definitely be using some of your recipe ideas now that I have a husband to cook for. :)
