Mom's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These were my FAVORITE cookies when I was a kid.  When my mom would make a batch for gifts she would take some melted white or milk chocolate and drizzle it on the top of them.  They're amazing.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) margarine, softened
2 tablespoons heat-stable sugar substitute equal to 3 tablespoons sugar
¼ cup egg substitute or 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
¾ cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup frozen unsweetened apple juice concentrate (thawed)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1/3 cup chocolate chips


Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.

In large bowl, beat margarine and sweetener or sugar until creamy. Add egg substitute; beat well. Add applesauce, apple juice concentrate and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add oats and chocolate chips; mix well.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets.

Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until firm to the touch and light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
