Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies

Submitted by: ERICALYNNJ
Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies

Number of Servings: 20


    1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa (such as Hershey's Extra Dark Cocoa)
    1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
    1-1/4 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
    3/4 cup granulated white sugar
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1 tsp. salt
    2 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
    1 large egg
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1/2 cup natural peanut butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together the first nine ingredients (through the chocolate chips) in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, vanilla, applesauce and peanut butter together. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.

Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper (this is optional, but it makes for easier clean-up). Roll dough into 20 balls, pressing down to flatten in the shape of a cookie. Place dough on prepared cookie sheets one inch apart. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes.

Makes 20 breakfast cookies.

    My kids are loving these as well as I am. This is the second time I have made them. They seemed a bit dry the first time, so I added 2 more TBL. of applesauce. Now they are perfect. - 9/19/09

    Good! I substituted splenda blend for the sugar, and used 6 tbsp. of mini chips instead of the 1/2 cup of regular chips, and used reduced fat peanut butter. I also omitted the cinnamon as I don't like cinnamon and chocolate together. My kids loved them! - 1/30/10

    Used splenda, omitted salt and added extra 2 tbl applesauce. Good flavor, they are a bit dry but I didn't think it was a problem. Similar to various protein bars on the market. Hoping they freeze well so I can make a batch at the beginning of the week and then pull them out as needed. - 12/7/12

    I added zucchini, and used half the sugar - next time I'll use less salt! - 8/16/12

    The recipe as is -- I found it okay, but a little bland and very dry. I'll make them again but add more applesauce, as people have suggested. I think it still needs a kick--maybe more cinnamon or perhaps even chili. - 11/5/11

    I should have read reviews so I would have known to add more applesauce. Without it, the dough is so dry you can't even mix it, trust me. Well, I added an extra egg to moisten and it was fine. I also think there is a bit too much salt, may want to reduce to 3/4 tsp. Good taste! - 5/15/11

  • I added 1 cup of applesauce, and they were pretty moist!
    Will make again - 12/11/13

  • I saw the other reviews and decided to try cutting half a cup of flour, but the dough was still VERY dry. I sort of hoped some kind of applesauce magic would happen and they'd turn out normal after baking. But they turned out quite dry, though I only baked them for 7 minutes. Definitely add more AS! - 5/9/13

  • These are AWESOME! I've been trying to recreate a breakfast cookie I used to buy for years.....this recipe did it! I also increased the applesauce. These will be a staple in our house. - 1/29/11

  • We love these! I do add a bit more applesauce as it is too dry otherwise. - 5/30/10

  • I've made these twice so far--they're a huge hit. They make a great energy-filled snack for my teenage son before track practice, and I've even succeeded in getting my I-hate-breakfast husband to take one along in the morning.

    I also add a couple extra tablespoons of applesauce. - 5/1/10

    Could you please confirm that this is for 1 cookie..the nutritional info. I am assuming yes. - 12/30/09

  • Sounds good - I might try to make them with Splenda instead of sugar and leave out the chocolate chips (or substitute nuts) to lower the sugars. - 9/19/09
