  • Place the oats into a food processor or blender and grind into a fine powder. Stir the oats together with the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside.

  • Beat the butter, applesauce, granular sweetener, and brown sugar substitute with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in the vanilla with the last egg. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips, grated chocolate, and walnuts mixing just enough to evenly combine. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

I didn't grind the oats because I like the texture the whole oat brings to a cookie. Instead of using Splenda- I used 1/4 cup organic agave nectar and a little under 1/2 cup light brown sugar. Turned out great! Read More

I followed the recipe exactly only adding a tablespoon of cocoa powder and ommiting the chocolate bar. I also used half the amount of dark chocolate chips. The flavor of the cookies is good but they were VERY VERY dry. Using the agave nectar probably added the much needed moisture to the dough. I plan on trying these again either with agave or more applesauce. Read More
