  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened & strained (you want the thickest part – you can do this with a slotted spoon)

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • Line your baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper.
  • With a mixture, cream together your butter and sugars.
  • Whisk in the applesauce, egg, and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the oats, flour, apple pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  • Once mixed, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • Fold in the chopped apple.
  • Cover and place dough in refrigerator to chill for 1-2 hours.
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop onto baking sheet at least 2 inches apart.
  • Flatten the cookies slightly.
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes, until they are lightly browned on the edges.
  • Remove from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before removing to finish cooling on a rack.

Notes

WW Freestyle Points: 5 per cookie

You’ll want to use thicker applesauce and avoid it being too watery.
