Apple Sauce Cookies

Apple Sauce Cookies

After making all of the apple sauce this year, I needed another way to use it up so I thought I would make up another cookie recipe. This would be great for someone who is Diabetic as the sugar count is next to nothing. Also, these are gluten free!

Apple Sauce Cookies

Ingredients:

¾ - Cup – Apple Sauce – I used homemade with no added sugar – you can use store bought, but make sure there is no sugar.

½ - Cup – Gluten Free Flour – I used Bob’s Red Mill

1 – Tablespoon of Cinnamon

1 – Teaspoon of Baking Soda

¼ - Teaspoon of Sea Salt

1 – Teaspoon All Spice

¾ - Cup of Oatmeal – I used Bob’s Red Mills Gluten Free Oats

½ - Cup of Dried Cranberries – Low sugar

¼ - Cup of Coconut Oil – melted

1 – Egg beaten

1 – Teaspoon of Almond Extract/Flavoring

2 – Tablespoons of Water

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with a wooden spoon. Drop a tablespoon per cookie onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12 to 15 minutes.

Store covered in refrigerator. I like to heat them back up and have them with a hot cup of tea. Makes a great breakfast cookie or two.

They look a bit odd but I'm sure they taste great!

I imagine these are both tasty and nutritious. Would they keep well enough in a child's lunch box?

Those sound wonderful. I love cookies, pretty much any cookie will do.

I think I actually have the ingredients for that. I may try to make some tomorrow.

I'm going to share this with my wife, and hopefully we'll be enjoying them soon. We're always on the lookout for healthier versions of baked goods, and these sound like they're right up our alley. She makes some absolutely delicious dark brownies that have chia/water mixture in place of egg, and are sweetened solely with applesauce, and they are out of this world! Thanks.

They do look odd, but are tasty.

Yes, I believe they would. It's much healthier than other snacks that you can buy.

They are drop cookies and do to them being diabetic friendly some ingredients that you would normal use in a cookie mix was not included in this recipe so they stay in .... a ball form... almost. Great little snacks to have in the mid-morning and will keep you going until lunch.

Thank you.

Great BarbRad - these you can actually eat!

tinamarie wrote on November 4, 2014, 10:06 AM

oh, test your batter and if you want them a little sweeter, use stevia if you are allowed to.

Those brownies sound great! Today I am working on a gluten free bread that uses chia seeds in place of the eggs.

I think the kids would enjoy these with their lunch and feel certain it would help to keep them energized the remainder of the school day.

These are really easy.

They are and you can add other ingredients as you wish. They are very versatile.
