Healthier Chewy Oatmeal cookies

These turned out so good, I started with this recipe and then tweaked it a little bit.


1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups rolled oats

about 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
dash of cloves
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 cup chocolate chips


preheat oven to 350 degrees, grease cookie sheet.

Cream butter, sugars, and applesauce. Add eggs one at a time mixing in between, then add vanilla and mix. Stir in dry ingredients, then add oats and mix. Add optional ingredients, making sure that batter is well mixed.

Place on baking sheet by rounded spoonfuls. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then place on cooling rack to cool completely.
