Cooking Time14 min

Cooking MethodMicrowave


  • 3/8 cup unsalted butter (3/4 stick)
  • 3/8 cup applesauce
  • 2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, or 1/2 cup brown sugar substitute
  • 1/2 cup sugar or sugar substitute
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, or 1/4 cup egg substitute + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 6 ounces mini chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Melt butter in large bowl in microwave (or on the stove) for about 1 minute on high. Cool to lukewarm.
  3. Add applesauce, brown sugar or brown sugar substitute, sugar or sugar substitute, vanilla, egg substitute and egg yolk, whisking to blend.
  4. Add whole wheat flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder in that order stirring with a wooden spoon.
  5. Dough should be stiff. Stir in mini chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  6. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop out dough not quite filling the cup. Do not flatten.
  7. Place cookies at least 2 inches apart. This usually makes 6 cookies on a 11 x 17 cookie sheet.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees F for 14 minutes and then check to see if they are done. When the edges are light brown and the centers are still soft, the cookies are ready to take out of the oven.
  9. Cool the cookies on the parchment paper on a flat surface or leave on cookie sheet to cool.
