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

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

    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

    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
