Chewy Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies

Chewy Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies

Applesauce is super simple to make!  Since I love using up apples & not having to throw any in the compost pile, applesauce is a really easy way to turn those aging apples into something wonderful. Sometimes, like after Thanksgiving, I have way too much applesauce. In those moments, this recipe for Chewy Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies comes in handy. I can bake up a batch, let my family enjoy them for a day or so, & freeze the rest of the cookies for a later time.

Chewy Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies


1 3/4 Quick Oats

1 1/2 Cups Regular Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

3/4 Teaspoon Salt

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon (Madagascar if you have it)

1/2 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Nutmeg

1/2 Butter, room temperature

1 Cup Dark Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup White Sugar

1 Egg

3/4 Generous Cup Applesauce

1 Cup Dark Chocolate Chunks

1 Cups Raisins

1 Cup Pecan Pieces



Preheat oven to 375.


Grease 2 Cookie Sheets.


Whisk together Oatmeal, Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt, Cinnamon & Nutmeg in a medium bowl.


Add Butter & both Sugars to a large bowl. Cream with electric mixer. Add Egg & Applesauce & beat again 3-4 minutes.


Add flour mixture to wet mixture in 2-3 batches, beating with electric mixer & scraping down sides of bowl with a spatula between each batch.


Using a wooden spoon, stir in Chocolate Chunks, Pecans & Raisins until mixed well.


Drop by rounded teaspoons unto greased cookie sheets. Leave room as they do spread some. Bake for 10 minutes – 1 minute more for the cookie tray on the bottom shelf if it isn’t fully cooked in the centers of the cookies.


Let cook cool on cookie trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.


Ta Da! You’re Done!
