I know we are all looking to eat healthier, these little cookies are perfect to satisfy any sugar craving I might have. They are bite-size, so one is not enough. Luckily they are only 1 point each.
1/3 cups cocoa (without sugar)
1/4 cup margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar, white (I might try reducing this and substituting the difference with splenda or something like that)
4 oz. applesauce, unsweetened
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour, white
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
powder sugar to sprinkle on top
Preheat oven to 375. Coat cookie sheets with spray. Place cocoa, margarine and sugar in a medium bowl; beat with an electric mixer. Add applesauce and vanilla; beat to blend. In another small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir flour mixture into cocoa batter with a wooden spoon. Shape batter into 48 marble-sized balls (I did a little bigger, about 1/2 a small spoon ). Arrange 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake until set, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and allow cookies to stand for 1 minute. Remove to wire rack and cool; sprinkle with a little powder sugar. You can store any extra in freezer -safe containers and save for another day.
p.s. The first time I made these I made them what I thought was "marble sized" and I got like 5 dozen. This time I made them too big and only got 3 dozen (so maybe 1.3 points per cookie, but WW rounds to the nearest whole number).
