Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Our Family Garden Cinnamon Applesauce
  • 1/4 cup Coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup
  • 1 cup uncooked oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger
Cinnamon Sugar Topping
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, add the applesauce, coconut oil, egg, honey, and agave syrup and mix to combine well.

Add the oats, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon zest. Stir to combine.

Mix in the cranberries, walnuts, and ginger.

Refrigerate the dough for 10 minutes.
Using two tablespoons, place a rounded tablespoon of dough on a parchment or baking mat lined cookie sheet.

Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on the top of the cookies.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the edges of the cookies are golden brown and the center is set.

Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the sheet for 5 minutes.

Note

Instead of cranberries and walnuts, you may use any other mix-ins you like, such as dried apricots, chocolate chips, or coconut.
