I followed the recipe, carefully measuring the ingredients and the result was a sticky glob of dough. I baked 6 and they were the most horrible peanut butter cookies I have ever tasted. I'll stick to my "traditional" recipe.


Nell, sorry to hear that these cookies didn't come out well at all. The recipe sounds ok, I will give it a try soon, and let you know how mine turn out. We have lots of other excellent peanut butter cookies, hope you can find some better ones. Happy Baking :-)


Made the peanut butter with applesauce turned out great friends want us to make more for office.

Mine turned out amazing. If you add a dash of baking powder, roll the cookies in sugar, and don't smoosh. They are a bit better

These are definitely not going to make the same cookies you might be used to, but the apple sauce adds more fibre! They will be puffier and the dough will be sticky. You can reduce this by adding a bit more flour or putting the dough in the fridge for a while.


Not sure how old this recipe is but I love it. I substituted the following one cup of oats for 1 cup of flour. 1 1/4 cups of sugar free brown instead of the sugar. I did two eggs instead of egg whites and I added a cup and a half of cranberries and a cup of sunflower seeds. I love this recipe. It did take me 13 minutes to bake my cookies but I hope people will try it it’s really good. Thank you67J

Get your own blog and post your shenanigans there. How rude of you to hijack this website. there is such a thing as online recipe etiquette.

I just tried these as I had expired peanut butter and applesauce to use up. Not your crunchy cookies but are delicious and addicting! Will be making these again!


I made these cookies for the frist time. I have to say if I didn't know to freeze the dough a little before I bake them I would have gotten a different result. But these turned out perfect. Thanks.
