    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.

    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

    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
