I made a batch of these for the first time a few weeks ago. They were a HUGE hit in my household and so I wanted to make them again, with even lower points, with the same great taste. I switched out the oil for no-sugar added apple sauce and I think they taste even better. I know you will LOVE them.
I wanted to see what the best way to bake them was so I made half the batch in my regular oven and half in my Air Fryer.
I can tell you this, both methods gave me “perfect” cookies. But, the AF took half the time. So I think this is a terrific AF recipe going forward.
I included both recipes for you below, of course! The recipe makes approximately 30 cookies. A serving is 3 cookies, which is 6 Points. Enjoy!
