I love a good chewy oatmeal cookie. These are lower in fat than most recipes and taste delicious. You can put in most any dried fruit. A combination of raisins, golden raisins, chopped dried cherries, and cranberries is delicious.
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons corn syrup
- 1⁄2 cup applesauce
- 2 eggs

- 1 1⁄4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
