This recipe uses a sugar-free cake mix to lower the points value for Weight Watchers. If you aren't following Weight Watchers, you can easily use any yellow cake mix for this recipe. I also used Gala apples, but you can easily add your favorite apple, or whatever you happen to have on hand at the moment.
I highly recommend investing in a silicone baking mat or two if you plan to make cookies often. Especially for these since I don't add any extra oil to the mix. Using applesauce lowers the points value on Weight Watchers, but can make them stick. The silicone baking mats are perfect for preventing burning or sticking and make cleanup super easy. I have a couple of sets of the Amazon Basics Silicone Baking Mats. They are my favorite for durability and price.
