Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal cookies

My run this morning was disappointing- and that's an understatement. My injury from the spring seems to want to make an appearance again. No, thank you! Run for the Water (10miles) is one week from today and my half marathon (13.1 miles) is 3 weeks from today, I cannot be injured, thanks!
so what was supposed to be a 9 mile run turned into a not even 5 mile run and a dog walk afterwards.
*SIGH*
So tonight I'll just act like I know yoga and give myself a good stretch....after I eat more of these cookies, of course.

Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup cinnamon chips
optional: a sprinkle of nutmeg or apple pie spice


Whisk applesauce, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla in one bowl. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, oats and cinnamon chips. Pour wet into dry and mix until well combined.
Plop some well rounded spoonfulls onto a greased baking sheet and cook in a preheated oven (325*) for 12 mins. Remove from baking sheet and allow to cool on a cooling rack before inhaling them!
FYI: Because there is no oil or butter they wont spread out on the pan, they will be more cake-y than crispy cookie-y, but replacing the oil/butter with applesauce cuts some fat and cals!




Channeling my inner Melissa on this one- she does it WAY better.

Not a super special recipe, just something a little different.

I wont lie, I will probably eat them for breakfast every day this week.
