Chicago hasn’t been very sunny this week. In hopes of bringing out more sunshine, we baked lemon cookies! They turned out tangy, sweet, and delish!
My daughter and her friend helped me bake, which was an entertaining play date activity. I was given a free bag of coconut flour so I wanted to try baking with it. It makes a yummy and good gluten free substitute.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine oil, applesauce, sugar, lemon juice, zest, eggs and vanilla.
Add flour, flour, soda, powder and salt.
Stir in poppy seeds and chocolate chips.
Place Tbsp. size cookie dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon, flatten each 1/3 inch thick. Bake until slightly golden around the edges, about 15 minutes. Allow cookies to cool.
