Ingredients
 

  • 1 cup unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 cup rolled oats (ground into flour)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • tsp. salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • Take oats and blend in blender or food processor until flour like texture.
  • In a bowl cream peanut butter and sugar together. Add vanilla and incorporate.
  • In a separate bowl mix oat flour, baking soda and salt until well incorporated together.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix on low until incorporated together. Cookie dough will be crumbly.
  • Add applesauce and mix until dough forms.
  • Take 1 heaping tbsp. cookie dough and roll into a ball in the palm of your hands. Place onto ungreased cookie sheet. Continue this process until all the dough is used.
  • Lightly press down the cookie with the palm of your hand. You can also use the bottom of a glass for this process if you wish.
  • Take a fork and carefully make criss crossed marks onto your cookies.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes until cookies are lightly golden on the edges. Let the cookies completely cool before removing them from the pan.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Allow the cookies to cool all the way before handling. They will easily break apart if handled before they have cooled.
  • If you would like to reduce the sugar in this recipe you can go down to 2/3 cup. The cookies will still be tasty but will have a mild sweetness. 
  • If you use salted peanut butter do not add the salt from the recipe.
