Embracing a new healthier way of eating has brought out the inner baker in me, and I couldn’t be happier about it! Frequently I am searching for new ways to make great treats meant to be shared by family and friends in a heart healthy way. After all, I’m all about heart ♥
Here is my latest creation-
½ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
½ cup oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons water
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup unsweetened cinnamon apple sauce
¼ cup carob chips (or chocolate chips)
Pre-heat oven to 350▫F
In a medium bowl mix flour, oats, baking powder and salt.
In a small bowl add water, vanilla, and apple sauce. Whisk together.
Add brown and white sugar to apple sauce mixture. Whisk until well combined.
Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Add apple sauce mixture to the center and stir together until combined.
Stir in carob chips.
On a cookie sheet (lined with a silpat if you have one) drop by the rounded Tablespoon.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned around edges.
Yield: approx 12 cookies
