I do think it is possible that a cookie can now be “healthy”…well OK, so maybe not healthy but the cookies I am writing about in this post are as close as you are going to get! In my opinion, these cookies are a must try! They were delicious! I brought some on the boat with us for Seafair and they were well liked. And, as I was eating way too many at home I brought a lot in to work a few days later and they were gone by the end of the day! People devoured them.
They are super moist (man, I hate that word but just not sure how else to describe them!) and extremely tasty (bet you are happy I didn’t use extremely with my least favorite word above..ha). And, although they are a cookie, I didn’t feel all that bad about eating a second one as there is NO oil/butter in these babies…instead there is applesauce. I have heard of substituting applesauce for oil in cakes however not that I recall in cookies. So glad my packet of Bob’s Red Mill Muesli had this recipe on it because I am in love 🙂
