      Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine applesauce, sugar, egg whites, milk
   and vanilla in a mixing bowl; whisk until smooth. Add the flour, baking
   soda, salt, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves and zest; stir just to mix.
   Stir in oats and raisins.
      Coat three cookie sheets with cooking spray. (This is unnecessary with
   nonstick pans.) Spoon the batter onto the cookie sheets, 2 heaping
   tablespoons at a time, leaving 3 inches between cookies. Gently flatten
   each cookie with a wet spatula.
      Bake 12 to 14 minutes, until firm and lightly browned on the bottom.
   (Watch closely; they burn faster than butter-based cookies.)Let cool on the
   cookie sheet 1 minute, then transfer to a rack to cool completely. Store in
   an airtight container. Yield: 20 cookies.
