Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These are my husband's favorite kind of cookies. Ever since I turned healthy foodie I have tried many different recipes for these loved cookies, and of course some yummy hits and some major misses. 

These ones are adapted from Nick Malgieri's cookies and are one of my favorite.

1/2 cup white flour

1 large egg
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup oats
1/2 cup raisins, packed

Option 1
Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt in a small bowl

In large bull cream butter and sugar together then add egg, vanilla, and applesauce. 

Blend dry into wet ingredients and blend in oats and raisins. 

Option 2 (I did this one) 
In a stand mixer cream butter an sugar. Then add egg, vanilla and applesauce and blend well.
