Peanut Butter Cookies

This is the peanut butter cookie recipe we copied down years ago off of a bag of flour.  We, naturally, modified it so that it is vegan and uses applesauce instead of oil since, as I've mentioned, we make our own applesauce, but have to buy oil.  It pretty basic, but pretty delicious!

Peanut Butter Cookies

1/3 cup applesauce
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1¼ cup all-purpose flour
¾ t baking soda
½ t baking powder
¼ t salt

Mix thoroughly the applesauce, PB, sugars. Blend in flour, soda, powder, and salt. Cover and chill. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll around in a small bowl of sugar until coated. Flatten with fork into the standard criss-crossed PB cookie pattern on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes until set but not hard.

  1. Peanut butter cookies sound so good right now. I have changed to Smucker's Peanut Butter that only has peanuts and minimal salt, so that should make them even healthier. I am saving this recipe!

    1. Yeah, its crazy how much junk they pack into PB sometimes. Our co-op has a fresh-grind machine loaded with peanut and we just grind until our jar is full. Sure beats all the unneeded sweetener and hydrogenated oils! I hope you like the recipe!
