Chocolate chip cookies (low-fat)

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Butter, softened
2 tablespoons Canola oil
1 cup Firmly packed dark brown
1 large Egg
½ cup Applesauce
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Baking soda
½ teaspoon Salt
1½ cup All-purpose flour
2 cups Regular rolled oats
1 pack (6 oz.) semisweet choc.
Baking chips
2 tablespoons Granulated sugar (thereabouts)

In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter, oil, and brown sugar until smooth. Add egg, applesauce, and vanilla; beat until blended. Beat in baking powder, soda, and salt, then flour, until smooth. Scrape side of bowl, then stir in oats and chocolate.

Bake dough right away; if allowed to sit, cookies will be dry. Drop dough by 2-tablespoon portions onto 2 lightly oiled 12-by-15-inch baking sheets, spacing evenly. Dip fingertips in granulated sugar, then pat cookies into ⅓-inch-think rounds.

Bake in a 350~ oven until pale golden, about 10 minutes; switch pan positions after 5 minutes. Lift to racks; eat warm or cool. Makes about 25.
