Applesauce Honey Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies came about as I've been trying to cut down on refined sugar. I used the sweetness from pure applesauce and honey instead of using any white or brown sugars. I did use a small amount of dark chocolate chips, but upped the raisins. They turned out really good, soft and comforting. One of these cookies every once in a while does not make me feel bad at all. :)
