Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line cookie sheets with parchment.
  3. You only need 2.
  4. In large bowl, beat sugars and applesauce until well blended.
  5. Add egg whites, milk and vanilla; beat well.
  6. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger; mix well.
  7. Add oats and dried fruit; mix well.
  8. (Dough will be moist.) Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
  9. I fit them in 4 X 5 rows with one cookie squeezed into the side.
  10. Press down cookies to desired thickness and width (these cookies will NOT spread because of no fat) Bake 4 minutes, then turn cookie sheet around to the other side and bake another 4.
  11. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack.
  12. Cool completely.
  13. Store tightly covered.
  14. I suggest using my Splenda Powdered Sugar Glaze.
  15. One recipe should do the trick.
  16. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon for an extra kick, if desired.
