Author Notes: The more my boyfriend requests a batch of cookies, the less comfortable I feel having the buttery treats hanging around the apartment - working from home requires a lot of restraint in the snacking department. So this most recent batch is a vegan confection that's packed with antioxidants and heart-healthy oats. A compromise! alyson mance

Makes: 12 cookies

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats
  • heaping 1/2 cups dried goji berries
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, baking soda, salt, and ginger into a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sugars, oil, vanilla and applesauce. Gradually add flour mixture and stir well. Mix in oats, berries and chocolate. Spoon onto greased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, until cookie edges have browned and crisped. (They will still be soft in the middle). Transfer to a baking sheet to cool, and serve warm. Store any leftover cookies in the fridge.
