Cake Batter Cookies

Once again, I tried to make these healthier, so here’s the recipe I adapted it from. (I pretty much just subbed in applesauce instead of using oil. It made em’ smell extra delicious!) Given the ingredients, these definitely have a cake-like consistency but they resemble cookies. :o I ended up with 40 cookies. :]

I had some left over so while I was tabling for International Festival yesterday, I brought it with me to bribe and/or guilt people into buying tickets. (No shame!) I managed to hustle a $20 donation out of someone in exchange for a blondie, so I’m feeling pretty darn accomplished.

You can make this vegan by subbing the eggs with “flax eggs” (each “egg” = 1 tbsp flax seeds + 2-3 tbsp water)!
