Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies!!

I adapted this recipe from one featured on Just a Pinch Recipe Club’s site.   My adaptions include substituting light butter for margarine to eliminate trans fats and adding in some white flour to keep the cookies from being too heavy.   You may prefer to check out the original recipe instead.


  • 1/2 cup light butter softened
  • 1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose white flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp  salt
  • 2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts…optional.


  •  Preheat oven 325
  •  In a large bowl, cream together the butter, apple sauce, brown sugar & white sugar until smooth.
  •  Beat eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla.
  •  Combine the flours, baking soda, & salt.  Then stir into the creamed mixture until just blended.
  •  Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, & chocolate chips.  Remember, some people may have nut allergies so the walnuts are optional.
  •  Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake for 12 minutes until golden brown.
  • Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for five minutes before transferring to wire rack.
