These delicious and nutritious breakfast or anytime cookies have been so popular that we decided to post the recipe again. Â This time with a little extra love and tweaking! These cookies have a rather crumbly texture so we gave you the option to add an extra 1/4 cup of oil along with 1 cup of no sugar added applesauce for a softer texture. Either way they are fabulous. Kids love them too!
