Yes, you can use applesauce, but I am not sure about the amount one would use as I have not tried it with the cookies yet. However, I have used applesauce in my Flax seed muffins instead of oil or marg. and they are delicious. If you substitute let me know how they turn out please.

Sounds so delicious. What about applesauce instead of the canola oil? It'd lower the fat count a bit... I use applesauce in several of my oatmeal cookies.

Little things add up to big differences. It only takes a step to get going in the right direction.

Smile! It makes people wonder what you are up to!

The oats add fibre and give the cookies a better texture. Oats help lower cholestrol and assist in lowering the glycemic index of the cookie.
Hope this helps answer the question.
