These oatmeal cookies were delightful. I love chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and these hit the spot. I love how they are and taste healthier, hint the whole wheat flour! I am going to next time try only using 1/2 cup oil with a 1/4 cup applesauce and decrease the sugars down to 1 cup total (3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup sugar) because the cookies tasted a bit to sweet for me. It is fun to experiment! :)
