Poose Cookies (the best healthy chocolate chip cookies ever)

No joke I have made these every week for John since we started dating. He doesn't eat cookies but these are the exception because they aren't bad for you :) They are a staple in his house and can always be found... except when he eats them all before the weekend comes... that is a sad week indeed. (and sometimes requires an extra batch being made to last till the weekend) hehe


Poose Cookies


ingredients
1.5 cups King Arthur whole wheat flour

1 cup Quaker oats

1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbs
Splenda brown sugar blend
2 Tbs Splenda sugar blend

1 package (7 ounces) Gerber Prunes with Apples baby food (NOT plums and apples) (contains 2 – 3.5oz containers)

3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 large egg
plus 2 egg whites
1.5 tsp vanilla extract

1.25 cups semisweet chocolate chips

.25 cup walnuts (optional)

pam cooking spray


instructions

preheat oven to 350

In a small bowl whisk together flour, oats, and baking soda. Set aside.

In a large bowl stir together splenda brown sugar and splenda sugar blend, stir in applesauce and prunes with apples containers.
Beat in egg.

Stir in vanilla. (if you want add a little more, mom always said a little extra vanilla never hurt anyone!)

Gradually stir flour mixture into wet mixture. Adding 1/2 cup at a time and stirring until incorporated.

Once flour mixture is almost incorporated, fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.

Drop heaping tablespoons onto a silicon baking pad on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Will vary with oven used.

Serve warm or for a summer treat transfer into the freezer and eat frozen a few hours later!

(to make these even healthier, take out some of the chocolate chips and sub in dried fruit and nuts - delicious)
