“This is a variation of a cookie recipe I love, just to give credit where credit is due... The Kind Diet's Oatmeal, Walnut and Dried Plum cookies. They are delicious but a lot of sugar so I tried another version and I think they are just as yummy!”
26 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. (or 325 convection oven). Line 3 cookies sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients.
  3. Wisk together wet ingredients.
  4. Fold in dry to wet and stir until moist. If batter is too dry add a little more applesauce.
  5. Use small ice cream scoop to make cookies.
  6. Bake 15 minutes.
  7. Transfer to baking rack and cool.
  8. I throw them into a ziploc bag and just grab 2 out of the freezer whenever the mood hits me. I use them for the kids lunches too and they love them!
  9. VARIATION: I basically make the same recipe but with dairy free chocolate chips instead of walnuts and omit molasses and maple syrup. We live on those! I love stocking up the freezer on Sundays. :).
