Absolutely love these cookies! Satisfied my craving for chocolate chip cookies, and they came out delicious and light. The combination of applesauce, oil and butter gave the cookies great flavor and texture, also made these cookies a lot lower fat than regular chocolate chip cookies. And an excellent way to use up the zucchini that bothered me for a while, haha!
