Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips & Craisins
Adapted from Chewy Oatmeal Cookies I from www.allrecipes.com
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup applesauce
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet)
1/2 cup Craisins
Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Cream together butter, sugar, brown sugar and applesauce in a large bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla.
Combine flour, salt and baking soda in another bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into creamed mixture. Stir in oats, chocolate chips and Craisins. Drop by rounded spoonfuls on prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Recipe Notes: These cookies turn out different just about every time I make them. Sometimes they are chewy, sometimes not. They are ALWAYS tasty, though. It takes MUCH longer for them to bake in my oven. Not sure if the time is wrong or it’s my oven. I would start with 8 to 10 minutes & then add time if needed.
