As I'm typing this out I can't help but think that I gotta sneak some chocolate chips in next time. Let's be honest....there really isn't too many things that aren't made better by chocolate. Mmmmm nope...definitely not. Oh and I'd like to try using applesauce in place of the melted butter. I've heard it works really well but I've never tried.
Excuse the terrible photo. Some day, over the rainbow, I dream of being rich and owning a really nice camera.....until then, my little free one will have to do.
If anyone tries my tasty little recipe with applesauce, pretty please let me know how it works out and how much you used? Love!
