The boy & I went apple picking the other weekend at a local apple farm. He was very enthusiastic and we came home with nearly a bushel's worth of apples.

We're now hitting the point where we're starting to need other things to do with the apples other than just eat them every day! When I saw this fantastic recipe on the Yummy Mummy Club for cookies made with applesauce, how could I resist?
The boy & I made them this afternoon and they are fantastic. We ate too many before I could get a good picture, so you'll just have to drool over the image on Yummy Mummy Club.
The only change I made in the recipe was to use hemp hearts instead of walnuts. This gives them a good protein kick, and they're still safe for the boy to take them to school. I've frozen half the batch and that way I have a quick ready made treat for us. Plus it means that we don't eat them all at once!
Now I just need a few more recipes to go with the rest of the apples that are left!
