To the plums add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, applesauce, coconut oil, brown rice syrup and sucanat. Mix together.

In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together. Drop by spoonful and sprayed or parchment lined baking sheets. Flatten each cookie slightly, using the bottom of a glass--dipping the glass in a bowl of water every once in a while. Bake for about 12 minutes. Cool on racks.
