100 Calorie Peanut Butter Chocolate Oat Cookies

100 Calorie Peanut Butter Chocolate Oat Cookies

Introduction

What a happy result to some Saturday-afternoon experimenting! I wanted more fiber and less fat, so I used a mixture of peanut butter, applesauce and butter for the fat component and ground up some oats to make "flour." The result is dense little cookies that taste great have a teeny bit of nutritional value. The little bit of milk chocolate is perfect. What a happy result to some Saturday-afternoon experimenting!

Ingredients

    2 T unsalted butter (room temp.)
    6 T. unsweetened applesauce
    1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
    1/3 c brown sugar
    1/3 c white sugar
    1 egg
    1 egg white
    1 t. vanilla
    2 1/2 c. whole grain oats (not instant)--milled in a food processor to the consistency of coarse flour
    1/2 c. flour
    1 t. baking soda
    1 t. salt
    1/2 c. milk chocolate chips, chopped even finer (place on a cutting board and run through with a large kitchen knife several times--you'll have some "shavings" and some mini-chips.)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter, applesauce, peanut butter, and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and blend just until incorporated.

Mix oat "flour," regular flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl, then stir it into the butter/sugar mixture. Add the chocolate and stir well.

Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray and drop the cookies in ping-pong-sized globs. They won't spread too much, so you can get 12 on a sheet.

Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Do not overbake! They'll be soft but sturdy.
