  • Mixing Bowl
  • Baking Sheet
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray


  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cloves
  • 1 cup chocolate chips optional


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix together applesauce, brown sugar, butter, and egg.
  • Add remaining ingredients (except chocolate chips) and stir until combined.
  • Dough should be firm (add more flour if needed). Fold in chocolate chips and scoop heaping tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes (until golden).


If making this recipe ahead of time, you can always freeze these cookies. These cookies freeze extremely well.
If you are making them in advance, we highly recommend placing them an air tight container, and layering wax paper between each cookie layer.
This will avoid the cookies sticking together.
Remove them from the freezer, 24 hours before serving.
