Recipe Ingredients for Spiced Molasses Cookies

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup dark molasses (I used blackstrap)
2 egg whites
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cloves

Recipe Directions for Spiced Molasses Cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Coat 2 large baking sheets with cooking spray (if needed).

  2. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, cloves, and salt.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, applesauce, oil, molasses, and egg whites. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat for 1 minute, or until well-combined. With the mixer at low speed, gradually beat in the flour mixture.

  4. Drop the dough by level tablespoons about 1" apart onto the prepared baking sheets.

  5. Bake 1 sheet at a time for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on a rack for 2 minutes. Remove from the sheet and place on the rack to cool completely.
