Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsalted butter

  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter

  • ¼ cup applesauce

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 4 egg whites

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Beat butter, peanut butter, applesauce, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs and beat until smooth.

  3. Sift together flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a separate bowl; stir into peanut butter batter. Put batter in refrigerator for 1 hour.

  4. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until cookies begin to brown, about 10 minutes.
