  1. You should be able to substitute at least half of the oil for applesauce. Like I’m going to. Right now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. you can use:
      total, wheaties, bran cereal, or whatever cereal you prefer and crush them = flakes
      any cereal should really work.

  2. What kind of yogurt? Should it be plain? Can it be nonfat or lowfat? Can you use vanilla yogurt or other flavors?

    1. Plain, vanilla, non-fat, lowfat, no problem. Other flavors of yogurt would be great too, just depends on what flavor you want. We did blueberry yogurt and dried blueberries the other day.

  3. I made these with Raisin Bran. I tripled the recipe and used wheat bran for a third of the flour. I used all applesauce instead of oil and raisins for the cranberries. I added about a tsp of cinnamon to the batter and about 1/4 cup of mini cinnamon chocolate chips (just a hint of a treat). I highly recommend that you grease the pans as my first batch stuck. My family ate these up like they were treat cookies! They didn’t believe me/care that they were supposed to be healthy! I’ll be saving this one!

  4. Love these & make them all the time with Bobs Red Mill Wheat Bran. Will have to try the applesauce too. Wondering calorie count though. Do you know? Thanks!

  5. These sound so yummy!!! I can’t wait to give them a try. I’m a freezer meal newbie but I’m in the planning stages of giving it a try. This recipe is on the list! Thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. That calorie analyzer is great, THANKS so much for sharing! We are trying to eat better and this will be very helpful. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I made these today. Yum! Have eaten 2 already, they just smelled so good. They are like eating muffin tops. I made mine a little bigger and got 12 cookies. I calculated and got 6 ww+ points per cookie. I’m going to try some substitutions and add in shredded carrot next time also.

  7. This recipe sounds great! My problem is that I’m allergic to yogurt. Is there anything I could substitute so that I can try this recipe?

  8. I am definitely going to try this with substitutions for the yogurt and wheat. Can’t wait to try it out as soon as I get more spelt flour!

  9. My family didn’t care for them; didn’t have a cookie texture so my kids wouldn’t even eat them. Don’t know if I did something wrong. I think next time I would had a bit more flour so there not so wet and will had chocolate chips and some nuts. I made mine with all applesauce and no oil which could of made the difference. they are spongie

  10. Accidentally used granulated sugar, the cookies spread out on the pan. Does the brown sugar prevent this. Yours looked like a nice cookie.

    1. Yes, I think that brown sugar vs regular sugar could have been the difference. When I made them they were thinner than a normal chocolate chip cookie but didn’t spread out too thin. Enjoy!

  11. U can use ground beans for the oil also , any canned beans. Black or white, navy,cannelli, kidney, etc. Just blend in your food chopper to I’ll smooth.
