Martha Monday–Iced Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies


Happy Monday everyone!  I was a little slow on the Martha Monday baking but I got it done.  I chose a cookie I wasn’t sure about but in the end…love it!

Iced Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies on page 77!

If you like oatmeal cookies, you’ll really like these!


Easy/Hard:  Easy, you don’t even have to wait for the butter to soften!

Ingredient availability: I’ve never seen chunky applesauce before unless I made it.  I just used a couple of the kids applesauce cups, naturally sweetened. 

What I like about this cookie:   This is another soft and chewy cookie.  They stand great on their own but are taken to another level with the icing! 

Baking experience: Today was a day off for the girls from school.  They didn’t help, they just ran around me asking when they would be done.  So my experience was loud :)  Not much difficult about the cookie baking, pretty standard stuff!

Taste:   I left out the raisin’s because me no like.  I mean they gross me out, it’s like eating bugs and having bitten (by accident) into a bumble bee, I know from where I speak!  So I’m sure the taste would be different, but without them, they are really really yummy.  Also, there’s maple syrup in the icing.  As a kid from the great white north, I love anything maple!


So if you think you’d like to try these, the recipe can be found on her website here.

Thanks for looking!

  1. these HAVE to be good for you if they have apples an oatmeal right! Your comment on raisins had me laughing! You funny.

  2. O.K. you have to explain how you accidentally bite into a bumblebee!!?? Love the look of these cookies (I love a chewy cookie) and the combination of the applesauce and oatmeal are just too hard for me to resist.

    1. At the CNE, I was 10ish, eating cotton candy and wasn't paying attention. I bit down and it was grittier than it should have been :)

  3. Delicious cookies! They are beautiful too. I want one!
