Amazing Double Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I made some cookies the other night when we were out of sweets.  I usually try to make them really healthy. These are quasi-healthy.

Do they look healthier now?  (or at least slightly happier?!)

Cra-mazing Double Chip Oatmeal Cookies
½ cup (1 stick) margarine or butter, at room temperature
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 ¼ cup sugar
1 Tbsp. molasses
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
½ cup oatmeal
½ cup raisins 
1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used a mix of white and regular, since that's what I had... and it turned out really great!)

Preheat oven to 350°.  In a large mixing bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until fluffy.  Add molasses and vanilla, and mix.  Add baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Mix in the flour in small batches, until it is well incorporated.   Add the oatmeal, raisins, and chocolate chips.  Drop by large spoonfuls onto a parchment-covered cookie sheet.  Bake for 12-14 minutes, until they are slightly browned. Cool on a cooling rack, and enjoy with milk!
