Preparation Time: 18 mins
Cooking Time: 12 mins
Yield: 36 x cookies (3 dozen)
Preheat oven to 350º F.
In a large mixing bowl, mix applesauce, molasses and sugar until creamed. Blend in flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Add flax seed-water mixture and vanilla; stir. Then, stir in oats and cranberries.
Onto a lightly greased baking sheet, drop cookie dough in about 1 tablespoon measures making about 36 cookies. Bake in preheated oven for 11 to 12 minutes. Let cool on wire rack or wax paper.
Cook a little longer for a little more crunch.
The cranberries help keep the cookies moist.
The flax seed-water mixture replaces the otherwise 2-egg ingredient.
