CHEWY OATMEAL COOKIES

CHEWY OATMEAL COOKIES

1 cup flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp butter, softened
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 ⅓ cups rolled oats (regular oatmeal, not instant)
½ cup mix-ins such as raisins, chocolate chips, and/or flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 375F (190C).

Prepare two cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, silicone baking mats, or foil.

Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and white sugar. Blend in the brown sugar, applesauce and vanilla, followed by the egg. Beat until very smooth then blend in the sifted dry ingredients until just combined, then add the oats and the mix-ins.

Drop the dough by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared sheets, then flatten slightly with damp fingers.

For chewy cookies, bake for 10 minutes or until they just begin to turn golden around the edges. Add two minutes more for crisp cookies.
