  • 3 cups packed brown sugar

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 (15 ounce) can applesauce

  • 3 large eggs

  • 4 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 3 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder

  • ¾ teaspoon coarse salt

  • 1 pound dried plums, cut into small pieces

  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil, or to taste (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Place sugars and butter in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Add applesauce and eggs; mix well until blended, 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Fold in plums and basil.

  3. Drop dough onto the baking sheets using a tablespoon-sized cookie scoop, spacing cookies 2 inches apart.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are golden and just set, about 10 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks.
