    why does there have to be applesauce? I dont like apples lol - 8/1/09

    Hey =) The applesauce is a substitution for oil in this recipe. You cannot taste a difference, but by replacing the oil with applesauce you save an amazing number of calories. 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce is 52 calories...1/2 cup of oil is 964 calories!!! Try the recipe, it's worth it!!

    sounds great, but how will they turn out if I use sugar instead of Splenda? Idon't use artificial sweeteners. and what would the equivalent be? Thank you. - 9/9/09

    You can use sugar instead of splenda. It would take 1/2 cup of sugar because they measure cup for cup. It will increase the calories slightly, but the biggest calorie saver in this recipe is the applesauce.

    So Good and I don't feel guilty about eating them. I was unsure about the apple sauce as I was making it but it only makes it taste better! They don't have the consistency of a normal cookie but both my roommate and I agree the consistency is only an improvement. - 4/6/11

    I like these better than regular peanut butter cookies. I used all sugar, no splenda, but I got quite a few more cookies out of it than I should have so it evened out. They made good sized cookies that were nice and moist and cake-like. Definitely a winner at our house. Thanks for the recipe! - 8/4/10

    Made these today and they are very soft and tasty but not the crunchy sort of cookie I was expecting. I ended up making about 40 of them and I think they will taste great with a small serve of jam on top:D Thanks for such a quick and tasty recipe to curb the peanut butter cravings! - 6/15/10

  • The batter was too sticky to make balls so I made them as drop cookies. I only got 29 cookies out of the batch so that upped the carb and calorie count. I don't think I'll make these again. - 1/20/13

  • These make great pancakes if you leave out the flour and substitute the brown sugar for sugar free maple syrup. Great topped w/ sugar free jam or syrup. - 7/25/11

  • I made these tonight. I made them exactly as the recipe called for. The batter wasn't tight, but I just did them as drop cookies, instead of into balls. I didn't add flour (extra) because I didn't want to add any extra calories at all. They are really good in my opinion, but no one in my house wil - 10/12/10
