Chocolate Chip Muesli Cookies

Have I mentioned that I have a major sweet tooth? I can thank my mom for that one. It was wasn't unusual to see her eating left over birthday cake or cookies with her morning coffee.
She would say "hey....I've got all day to burn in it off!"

Well, as Sara B Consulting principle #4 goes....Schedule snack times. Do not restrict, rather manage!

Muesli Chocolate Chip Cookies
on the back of Bob's Red Mill Muesli package

Abby suggested we make this recipe as it is a fav in her family
I believe it is a fav in mine now too!

1 cup Muesli-Old Country Style
3/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup applesauce (original calls for butter)
1/3ish cups Brown Sugar (half of what original recipe calls can also use honey, Splenda brown sugar, or regular....your choice)
1- 6oz. pkg. dark chocolate chips (I bought some at New Pioneer Coop in the bulk section)
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Watkins vanilla
1 Egg

Heat oven to 375°F. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together and set aside. Blend applesauce, sugar, and vanilla.

Beat in egg. Add flour mixture and mix. Stir in Muesli and chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoons on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F for 10-12 minutes.
Makes 24 delicious cookies.
