This is also the first time I've use applesauce in place of some of the butter in the recipe. This happened by accident as I needed 1.5 cups of butter...but only had 1 cup out. It seemed to work out very nicely!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies- adapted from Allrecipes
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cups peanut butter(I used chunky and smooth)
2 cups brown sugar(I did NOT pack them)
2 cups whole wheat flour
3 cups quick cook oats
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
Scoop rounded tbsp onto cookie sheet. Gently press down with fork. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 mins.
**These cookies came out moist and chewy. The boys gobbled them right up!
