Great for breakfast! Three cookies and a glass of milk will fill you up. Please refrigerate them cuz they have chopped apple in them.

I used only spelt flour. These cookies keep their shape during baking. Even more cinnamon flavor would make them better I think but they are good as the recipe stands! They make a great breakfast cookie! Read More

I thought these were just okay. To me they were not sweet enough and lacked flavor somehow and the peanut butter seemed lost. I did love how they kept their shape. I tried on the second batch to add more sugar and even cocoa to a few but just couldn't get it right. I do appreciate the healthy aspect of them and might try them again without the peanut butter add vanilla and more cinnamon and/or nutmeg. Read More

I will keep this recipe....used craisens (1 cup)rather than apples as that is what I had on hand. I think it might have helped with the sweet factor. Definitely liked all the healthy ingredients! Read More

I used sugar-free applesauce and only 1/2 cup natural peanut butter. To compensate for the lack of sugar in these two ingredients I upped the brown sugar to 2/3 cup. They were plenty sweet. I served them for breakfast with smoothies and the kids loved them! These are going on the breakfast menu! Read More

These were really pretty good. My kids liked them! I added a tablespoon of cinnamon instead of what it originally called for and a half cup more of brown sugar. They have a cake like consistency. There tasty! I'll make these again. Read More

My family didn't really like these cookies. I think they are a bid bland and when my little ones see cookies they expect a tasty treat. I was so excited to try them and then ended up with 4 dozen cookies no one wanted to eat. The plus side is two of our horses really like them so I may keep the recipe in the box for them. The horses give it 5 stars! Read More

Yes used mashed soft apples for the applesauce and 1/3 cup of Country Crock margarine was substituted for the 1 cup flax seed meal and used all-purpose flour which substituted for the whole-wheat flour also added a touch of nutmeg and honey. Read More

No one liked it. Should’ve shred the apples so much that you can barely see it. Also, made the mistake of making the applesauce from scratch so it was just way too much apple and you couldn’t taste the peanut butter at all. Read More
