Craving-Cure Cookies

What you need: 

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup dry sweetener of choice
1/3 cup apple sauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
3/4 cup carob chips (or raisins, or something else you like)

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix sugars, apple sauce and vanilla.
2. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder and salt, then stir into the wet mixture.
3. Add the oats and then the carob chips. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
Once you add the oats and chips it gets very thick, so you can always add a bit more apple sauce or some water to get it to a better consistency. (I usually don't have to do this). They come out nice and soft! Usually makes about 20-24 cookies depending on how big I make them. Enjoy.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

You can definitely tell it's a healthier cookie but it helps with your sweets cravings, just as the name of the cookie states... I will more than likely make these again but with unbleached flour, I know not as healthy but the whole wheat taste takes getting used to....

Thanks for posting this one!!!!!

Just took these out of the oven and they are YUM!  Mine made 25 small cookies, which is perfect.  I'll definitely make these again!

EDIT:  Not sure what I was thinking when I said this made 25 cookies.  Last time it actually made 21 and today it made 20, which means based on 20 cookies, it comes out to 125 calories per cookie and 2.2 grams of fiber per cookie.
(If anyone cares  :-\)

Yum!  I used 3/4 cup brown sugar (perfect sweetness for us), 1/2 cup applesauce and added 1/2 cup golden raisins and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.  It made 25 Mrs. Fields'-sized cookies, 100 calories each, about 1.75 grams of fiber (was hoping for more!)  Mine didn't flatten out at all, so I flattened them with a spatula part way through baking.  Very yummy and filling.  Amazing that there's no oil/margarine.

OMG...........to die for. I did change one thing & they still came out chewy and full throttle flavored. I use (Flexseed/H2O) instead of applesauce. A tad bit healthier. Yum Yum Yum..

I just took these out of the oven, and they're pretty tasty!  :) I used all turbinado sugar, white flour, 3/4 cup of oats, 1/2 cup of chips, and a few handfuls of dried cherries. I baked them for 9 minutes, but they seemed too squishy so I  baked them for 3 more mins. and let them sit on the tray for a while. They came out nice and chewy, but maybe a little health-foody, like baypuppy said.

a good, standard recipe. i added a little more applesauce, used rolled instead of quick oats, used all brown sugar, subbed pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon (was out  :o), and added 3/4 c of a mix of chocolate chips, walnut bits, and currants. craving cookies, right? the resulting cookie baked up nice and was tender/chewy. however, i felt something was missing. i might add a little nutbutter next time to give the dough a little more "something special".

i do like that these rely a lot on oats/ww flour AND don't have added oil-- that alone proves this tasty enough to warrant 5 stars. if you are looking for a more "junk foodie" cookie you might want to keep going. i gave it four stars, feeling somewhat mislead by the name of the cookie  :D  while very good, they do taste healthy.

Oh so chewy, Oh so good!!!  Saw your recipes today and had to try it!  I know this one will be a keeper in my house!!!  I had to add a bit more applesauce, also added some crushed walnuts.  Thanks for passing this one on!  :D
