Week 3 Cookies–Loaded Oatmeal

Still thinking about January being National Oatmeal Awareness month – I made this one up.  I really was just cleaning out partial containers of stuff in my pantry – however, they are really good!

LOADED OATMEAL COOKIES:

1 stick soft butter                           1 C brown sugar
2 eggs                                            1/2 C applesauce
1 C oatmeal                                   1 C raisins
1 C coconut                                    1 C flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder                   1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Cream butter and brown sugar, add eggs and applesauce.  Stir in oatmeal, raisins, coconut.  Mix flour, baking powder, soda and salt together – add to mixture.  Bake 375 for about 8 minutes.  DO NOT over bake.  Makes 3 doz.

Dang cold here too! It just isn't an oatmeal cookie if you don't add raisins is it? I like the applesauce instead of white sugar here.

Those cookies look so good. I can hardly wait to try them. Oatmeal cookies are my favorite, but I have never seen a recipe that incorporates coconut and applesauce into them. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe and for linking it to The Farmgirl Friday Hop! Have a great week.
