DIRECTIONS

  • Cream applesauce, oil, sugar and 1 T water.

  • Add to applesauce mixture and mix until combined.
  • If applicable, add chocolate chips last.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Preheat oven 400°F and grease a cookie sheet well.
  • Make approximately 24 balls (or you can do drop cookies).
  • Bake for approximately 8 minutes—they should be very puffy. Be careful not to over-bake as they will become quite hard when cooled.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet, they will fall considerably due to the lack of egg.
