Coconut Applesauce Cookies

I love mixing unexpected ingredients to make healthier desserts, and these Coconut Applesauce Cookies are a delicious and easy way to enjoy cookies in a more responsible way. Filled with (mostly) healthy ingredients, like applesauce and just a sprinkling of shredded coconut, these no-guilt cookies are truly a delight on the tastebuds and the waistline.

I’ve made my fair share of desserts using crushed pineapple, like these and these. Today, I thought I’d try to use applesauce to add moisture to the mix. I love the subtle apple flavor in the final cookies, and I love how much healthier applesauce is, compared to butter or shortening.

Sprinkle with the coconut and bake for 15-17 minutes.

Let cool. These cookies are soft and slightly cake-like thanks to the cake mix. They are delicate in flavor and lovely in texture.
