Recipe by KRice, PA
This recipe produces soft, cookies that taste even better the next day. This is a great recipe to use for family functions or just to use up your browning bananas. A half cup of chocolate chips or walnuts make great additions. If you are skeptical that these taste great with Splenda (you can't even tell), then add 1/2 cup of sugar in place of the Sugar Blend. These cookies will be a hit.

These are great cookies! They are soft and really yummy. The kids loved them as well which says a lot. I love that they are made with Splenda Blend. You can't taste the difference, but it saves on some calories. This recipe is definitely one I would use over and over. I would highly recommend this recipe.
- 1 cup applesauce (Two 4-ounce individual applesauce cups work great!)
- 1⁄4 cup Splenda Sugar Blend for Baking (this site made me write "for Baking"...the bag doesn't say that)
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 3 bananas, mashed
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts (or chocolate chips)
- 2 egg whites
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
