I've been asked to begin a blog that shows a "how-to" for the things that bring pleasure to my life. So, the intent of this blog is to share recipes, gardening, composting, sewing, crafts, art, everyday projects and even psychology tips to aid in healing wounds and living the life you're meant to live, a life with purpose!

Healthy Lowfat, low sugar Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies; for kids, diabetics, weight loss, or heart patients.


¼ C brown sugar

¼ C artificial sweetener

½ C Natural (unsweetened) applesauce

¼ C egg substitute

1 C flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1 C oats

¼ C raisins, usually I am generous w the raisins ; I split btwn golden & regular. (Our kids like raisins in every cookie).
Cranberry option:

Optional: You can add nuts, sunflowers, or use dried cranberries instead of raisins (golden or regular).


A. Preheat, turn on oven to 350 degrees.

1. In a large mixing bowl, mix the brown sugar, sugar substitute, egg substitute and applesauce.

2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt & cinnamon (sift if you like).

 In the above picture: Wet and dry ingredients before combining. I like to simply lay a sifting wire mesh over a larger bowl. I find this easier than trying to get the flour into a small sifter.
 Pour dry ingredients into sifting wire basket.
 Shake to shift dry ingredients.
Usually you will have a few crumbles to discard. 

3. Stir sifted dry ingredients into the applesauce mixture.

4. Add the oats and raisins. Stir well.

5. Drop heaping tablespoons onto lightly sprayed (with Pam cooking oil) cookie sheets.

6. Bake for 10 minutes in 350 degree oven.

7. Allow cookies to cool slightly before removing them from baking sheet.
Optional Cookie:
Nuts have fat, but healthier fat than shortening or butter fat.
