A Healthier Cookie with Mini M&Ms

A Healthier Cookie with Mini M&Ms

I've been itching to bake lately but haven't because I don't want it in the house to tempt me. Well, I gave in today because this heat wave is killer and I wanted to sit in the ac! Sitting in the house means keeping the boys as busy as possible so we painted seashells, played legos and made cookies!I cut down the amount of butter and sugar, swapped out white flour for stone ground whole wheat flour, threw in some oats and used unsweetened applesauce to moisten them up. Of course because they were for the kiddos they convinced me to throw in some mini m&ms we had. Certainly, to make these healthier take out the m&ms and use chopped raisins or dried figs. These are a great substitute for a traditional cookie because you don't have to feel so bad about having one or letting the kids have an extra.

This recipe contains butter (unsalted), sugar (brown), eggs, vanilla extract, applesauce, flour (whole wheat), oats (steel), baking powder, salt, m&m's
