Place the rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F).

Grease two cookie sheets.

Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a bowl.

In another bowl, stir together brown sugar, margarine, and apple sauce, using a wooden spoon. Add the egg and vanilla.

Incorporate the dry ingredients and apple chunks.

Using an ice cream scoop (approx. 45 ml or 3 tbsp.), place about 12 balls of cookie dough on the baking sheet, leaving space between them. Flatten the balls slightly with a fork.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Allow to cool on a rack.
