This recipe is my own creation. I suggest using WaterMelon's reduced fat baking mix (Recipe #75577). Applesauce can be substituted for the butter, if desired, but I prefer the results of butter or margarine. Thanks, WaterMelon.
These are wonderful soft and chewy ginger cookies. They make a lovely afternoon treat or could be put in a lunch box. They are originally from "Hey, Mom! I'm Hungry!" by Susan Powter and were supposed to be cookies to use to make ice cream sandwiches. Honestly, though, they never last long enough in our house to put ice cream between them! They are gobbled up as soon as they are cool enough to hold!
This recipe is adapted from razzledazzlerecipes.com. I suggest using WaterMelon's low fat baking mix (Recipe #75577) to make these these cookies healthier. (Thanks, WaterMelon!) I also usually substitute unsweetened applesauce for all or part of the butter or margarine.
I found this one at www.stretcher.com while looking for "homemade baking mixes". This recipe comes out rich and fudgy every single time. It's also very easy to put together initially. Prep time is the time it takes to mix a full batch of brownie mix and put it in bags. Putting it in bags is not necessary, it's just something I do to make an easy thing even easier. Please Note: I have changed the Yield. It was 12 bags. I made a batch tonight and got 10 bags. In my neck of the woods, the cost of each bags-worth of mix comes to $0.53, making this the least expensive dessert in my cookbook. I arrived at this price using Hershey's cocoa.
I played around with my family's No Bake Cookie recipe and produced a single portion of this cookie that I feel is healthy enough to eat as a meal. They’re still very good but are much healthier. I keep getting asked for the recipe, so I finally decided to measure out the exact portions and post the recipe. THIS RECIPE IS VERY FLEXIBLE! When I make them I NEVER measure out anything and I often add more or less of ingredients and they still taste great. I sometimes leave out the wheat germ and flax seeds and just add more oatmeal. I have made these replacing the sugar with about 3 tablespoons of honey. I have changed the recipe from 1 tsp. to 1 Tbsp. of cocoa powder.
