Serves: 18
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce* (or 1/2 cup butter, softened)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg replacer (i.e., chia or flax-egg or Ener-G)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) NatureBox Cherry Crumble Granola
  • 3/4 cup (4.5 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Beat together applesauce, brown sugar, and vanilla. Add egg and beat with an electric mixer on high for about 2 minutes.
  3. Reduce speed to low and add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Beat until well combined.
  4. Stir in granola and chocolate chips.
  5. Drop 18 heaping tablespoons of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool for about 1 minute before transferring to a baking rack to cool completely.
Notes
*I like to use unsweetened applesauce in place of butter when I bake. It adds a natural sweetness and moistness, and it drastically cuts calories. For other natural, healthier substitutes, refer to my post "Instead of That, Use This: Healthy Baking Substitutes".
