OATMEAL COOKIES - VERY CHEWY

They are made with the old-fashioned oatmeal, and this time all I had was Bread Flour not All-Purpose Flour.
So using a recipe off the box of oatmeal which I have enjoyed many times, I altered the recipe and used bread flour, a little less and also added a little applesauce!
They do have a nice chewy texture which I LOVE.
