Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies

This is another recipe I found in a children's magazine. This makes a large batch. You can freeze unbaked dough, or for that matter, bake them ahead and freeze the cookies.

Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together the following:
7/8 cup oil
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup honey
2 cups applesauce (unsweetened)

Mix together separately and add to the wet ingredients:
2 cups flour (I used whole grain soft wheat)
6 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups raisins

The original recipe reads "drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet." (I used a cookie scoop (like a very small ice cream scoop) and put on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. I think it would've been fine as suggested in the original recipe.) Flatten some before baking as they will not flatten on their own. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until done.
