These moist and chewy oatmeal cookies have sweet raisins and crunchy walnuts in every bite.
As the weather gets cooler, I love baking cookies on the weekends. One trick to reducing calories and fat in a recipe is to replace most of the butter with applesauce
so you won't feel as guilty eating them. That's exactly what I did with this recipe - it calls for only 2 tablespoons of butter, and the rest is replaced with apple sauce.
I've also substituted pure maple syrup for half of the suga
r in the recipe, which gives this cookie the perfect hint of fall. And what a perfect fall cookie this is!
