  • 1 ¾ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or nutmeg , or both
  • 1 ¾ cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 tablespoon flaxmeal whisked with 5 tablespoon water
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 ½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup pecans or walnuts, lightly toasted and chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Beat the sugar, molasses and oil on medium speed with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer until well-combined
  • Add the flax seed mixture, applesauce and vanilla extract and mix for another 2 minutes.
  • Add the flour mixture and mix until the batter is smooth.
  • Stir in the oats and the nuts and mix well.
  • Grease a cookie sheet. Drop heaping tablespoons of the cookie batter on the sheet (this recipe makes 36-40 cookies). Bake about 10 minutes, rotating the sheet halfway through the baking.
  • Remove from the oven - the tops of the cookies should be very lightly browned. Let the sheet stand on a rack for 2 minutes, then remove the cookies from the sheet and transfer to a rack to cool completely.
