Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter, peanut butter, applesauce, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs and beat until smooth.
  3. Sift together flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a separate bowl; stir into peanut butter batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  4. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until cookies begin to brown, about 10 minutes.

I don't make cookies too often, but this recipe is awesome. I am always trying to bake or cook healthier. These cookies have a great taste and are nice and chewy. Just the way my husband and I like cookies. Thank you so much for coming up with a healthier version of peanut butter cookies. I will definitely try this recipe again.
