White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

That title is false. It really should be White Chocolate Chip-Craisin-Coconut-Oatmeal Cookies. But like let's be real, if I want a cookie I am not going to ramble off that before digging in. 

I made these before but this time changed it up because we have an abundance of white chocolate chips, craisins and oatmeal. Not that its a bad thing.

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
adapted from Gina's Skinny Taste
makes 15-18

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, unpacked
1 egg white
1/8 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup quick oats
1/4 cup craisins
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup shredded coconut

1. Preheat oven to 350°; spray one baking sheet.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. 
3. In a large bowl, with a mixer, cream together the butter and the sugars on medium speed.
4. Add the egg, followed by the applesauce and vanilla extract.
5. stir in the flour mixture and the oats until just combined and no streaks of flour remain; stir in the white chocolate, coconut and craisins.
6. Drop tablespoonfuls of the dough onto prepared baking sheets, flattening each cookie slightly. Bake for about 8 minutes, or until cookies become light brown at the edges.
7. Let cool on baking sheet for 3 or 4 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Welp. I should have made the whole batch..our cookie eating friends got a hold of them and now their all gone! But don't worry I also made apple cinnamon bread's dangerous the things I do when I chose to bake over homework...
