Beat sugar and butter at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended (about 5 minutes). Add applesauce and egg; beat well. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, oats, soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat at low speed until well-blended. Stir in raisins, walnuts, and vanilla. Using 3 level tablespoons per cookie, drop dough 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray; flatten slightly. Bake at 350° for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove cookies from pans; cool on wire racks.
Mine came out gummy in consistency, don't know what went wrong... :( I followed the recipe exactly and have made dozens of cookie recipes successfully from this site. I may try a small batch again soon just to double check it wasn't an error on my part (don't want to leave a bad review on here if it's wrong!), but for now I'm disappointed by this recipe and don't recommend it.
Thought this recipe was fantastic. It didn't taste like a low-cal low-fat recipe. I made the smaller cookies as well, a heaping TBSP. Also I used a substitute egg concoction (no eggs) and it turned out perfect.
I still think calories are high but better then the store
Today, I was a little short on ingredients. Had just about 1.25 cups of brown sugar, used chickpea goo instead of egg and coconut oil instead of butter. Kept ratios otherwise the same and still turned out fantastic!
