My kids ate them so quickly! They had NO IDEA these cookies were different than others. Let me show you how fun and simple they are to make.
Let us start with the Applesauce. I used some homemade applesauce that I made just that week in the instant pot. Click here for the recipe, it is very healthy and easy.
ARE APPLESAUCE COOKIES SWEET WITHOUT ANY SUGAR?
If you are expecting a sugary cookie this is not it! Applesauce cookies are sweet but the intensity of the sweetness will depend on your applesauce. Because the applesauce is the sweetener I feel that it is important to have QUALITY sweet applesauce. My homemade applesauce had no added sugar, but was made with fresh, sweet apples so it was plenty sweet. If you are using a store bought unsweetened applesauce that is not very sweet to your taste as is don't expect your cookies to be super sweet.
Step 1: Cream the butter, eggs and together. Then slow add flour
Step 2: While that is creaming together in a small separate bowl mix baking soda together with your applesauce. A nice little fizzing action will happen.
Step 3: Incorporate the applesauce mixture into the flour and creamed ingredients. After its well mixed gently mix in the chocolate chips.
Applesauce cookie batter
This batter is similar to a pumpkin cookie batter. It's really sticky, not one that you can roll into balls. so just plop a spoonful on to a cookie sheet. Space them far enough apart to allow the cookie to rise and spread as it bakes.
Bake them for about 12 minutes, when they are turning a light golden color. (clearly you can see we use extra chocolate chips)
My entire family loves these cookies and they devoured the entire batch in 2 days this last time I made them. Depending on how large you make them it makes about 3 dozen.Plenty to share...if you are feeling generous.
