After I made the Cranberry & Oat Muffins I had half a jar of apple sauce left over. Now, being somebody who hates waste I had to make something else with apple sauce to use it up, hence this recipe. I know apple sauce isn’t a normal ingredient of chocolate chip cookies but I think you will be pleasantly surprised if you try them.


275g Plain Flour

1/2 teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda

1/2 teaspoon Cornflour

1/4 teaspoon Salt

40g Castor Sugar

90g Brown Sugar

50ml Sunflower Oil

65ml Apple Sauce

1 teaspoon Cinnamon

1 Large Egg

1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence or Extract

100g Chocolate, drops or chunks


Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cornflour and salt in a bowl. In another bowl mix the sugars, oil, apple sauce, cinnamon, egg and vanilla. Next mix the dry ingredients (flour etc) in with the wet ingredients and finally add the chocolate chips and stir thoroughly. I used chunks of white chocolate as that was what I had in but you can use whatever type of chocolate you want to.

Chill the cookie dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but it can be left overnight if required.

Once chilled form the dough into small balls, I made them the size of walnuts but it depends what size you want your cookies, and then flatten slightly onto a non-stick baking tray.  Preheat oven to gas mark 4 (350 F; 180 C) and cook for about 10 minutes.
