Well, they were delicious! Very, very good. They are kind of a light cookie, not real sweet. Here is the nutrition info for each cookie. (Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies) I only lacked 2 cookies from making 2 1/2 dozen, so the nutrition info would be pretty close for my cookies.

BASIC WHOLE WHEAT COOKIES
Yields 2 1/2 dozen cookies
Preheat oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
2 T canola oil
2 T soft margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 egg whites
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 t baking soda
3/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/8 t ground nutmeg
1/2 t ground cinnamon
Cream oil, margarine and 3/4 cup sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add applesauce, egg whites and vanilla to the margarine mixture and beat until smooth.
Stir flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, 1/8 t nutmeg and 1/2 t cinnamon together in a bowl. Gradually add to wet ingredients, mixing after each addition. Drop by rounded teaspoonfulls onto prepared cookie sheet. (I hand-stirred everything, I did not use a mixer)
Take sugar/cinnamon mixture and sprinkle on the dropped cookie dough. Bake 8 - 12 minutes in preheated oven until lightly brown. Watch carefully and do not over bake them. (I baked mine for 12 minutes)
I also added 1/2 cup of black walnuts...yummy!
I hope you try these, they are so good. My husband is on an antibiotic, so he can't drink milk for a while, so we fixed us a cup of decaf coffee to share and sipped on it while eating the cookies.
You could add other ingredients to this recipe, such as raisins, chocolate chips and such. I added the nuts, because I love nuts!

I remembered to use my vintage green bowls. I think they are so pretty.
