    This was very good overall. The batter was rather soupy, so I added 2/3 cup of oats to thicken it and make it more like oatmeal raisin cookies. It had a cake-like texture rather than the cookie bar I expected. However, for a sugar-free dessert, it was delicious especially when topped with sugar-free vanilla ice cream. I did change the order of mixing. I combined dry ingredients separately and combined egg, applesauce, and vanilla separately, also. I added a bit of the hot mixture into the egg mixture before combining both mixtures together. Then I added the flour mixture.
