This is how the cookie crumbles!

I've had a pretty good day today. had a leisurely walk with beebz along the sea front into town, did some knitting and a ole lotta baking.
Started off with the cheesey bread then i moved on to...
Phase two of baking saturday... dog biscuits. They are bone shaped this time using this recipe
 Phase three ... Human biscuits...well cookies. these low calories healthy bites are more cakey and crumbley rather than chewy, but non the less very moreish and will nicely satisfy a cookie craving.

 Chocolate chip applesauce cookie.
I adapted this recipe i found by 'tastes better with friends' and cut down the quantities, because i don't need 36 cookies (well i do).
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of applesauce
  • 1 tsp. of baking soda
  • 2/3 cup of flour
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 1/2 cup of raisins/chopped ginger/choc chips
  • vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 375F or 180 degrees C
  2. Cream sugar and applesauce. add in egg white and vanilla extract and whisk further.
  3. Sift flour with baking soda and salt .
  4. Add sifted ingredients to applesauce mixture and stir until smooth.
  5. Add your combo of mix ins, i added chopped crystalized ginger, chocolate chips and raisins.
  6. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet, spacing the cookies 1 to 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake about 12 minutes or until lightly browned. 
Makes 11 cookies at 66 calories each.
  NOW EAT! whilst the chocolate is still ooey gooey.
Gonna dip and slurp mine with a glass of milk, whilst looking out at this view!


  1. That's a wonderful twist to chocolate chip cookies :) I followed you from the foodieblogroll and I'd love to guide Foodista readers to your site.
