What Ingredients Are Used To Make Low-Fat Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies?

  • All Purpose Flour– When in doubt, always go with “all purpose” flour.
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Butter- Always buy unsalted butter for baking, then add salt as needed. This is a quality-control technique to produce better baked goods
  • Sugar- helps cookies spread, adds a more crisp texture to cookies, and surface cracking due to crystallization, which can be desirable depending on the type
  • Brown Sugar
  • Egg
  • Applesauce
  • Old Fashioned Oats NOT quick oats

  • Turn the mixer on low, add the unsweetened applesauce and dry ingredients.

Can you make our Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies vegan?

Yes, If you’d like the Applesauce oatmeal cookies vegan, you can swap the butter for a vegan butter substitute-  I like Earth Balance Organic Whipped Buttery Spread and use an egg substitute like JUST egg.

This recipe can also be made into a Diabetic Applesauce Oatmeal Cookie Recipe by using unsweetened apple sauce, Swerve sugar substitute and using Swerve brown sugar.
