Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Spoon applesauce into a fine sieve over a bowl and let drain for 15 minutes. Discard liquid. Scrape drained applesauce into a large bowl. Add sugar and butter and beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Beat in vanilla and egg. Add flour mixture, beating at low speed until well-blended. Fold in chips. Drop by level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
