Chocolate Applesauce Cookies

So loosely based on the Applesauce Softies from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar as to be insulting to the original recipe… They are delicious though. Very tempting when warm.
300g whole wheat flour
100g cocoa powder
75g sugar
200g or 2/3 cup applesauce
25g or 1/4 cup rapeseed oil
25g vegan chocolate chips (optional)
3 teaspoons baking powder

Preheat the oven to 180c.

Mix the sugar, cocoa powder and oil thoroughly. Add the applesauce and then the flour to make a soft dough.

Use an icecream scoop to portion out balls and then flatten them with the palm of your hand onto a non-stick pan or mat.

Bake for about 15 minutes.
