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.
- 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
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, stir applesauce, Splenda Sugar Blend, and brown sugar.
- Add in the bananas, walnuts, egg whites, and vanilla.
- In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Stir flour mixture into the sugar mixture and blend well.
- Scoop batter onto cooking sheet sprayed with Pam. Space cookies about 3 inches apart using a spoon.
- Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
- Cool on a wire rack.
- Let the cookies cool and coat with your favorite icing, glaze, confectioners sugar, or leave them plain. They're just as tasty without any icing.
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.
A very good cookie! Really nice & soft! I used some cardamom applesauce I made last year from our pear-apple tree. I must say, though, that this is one of the wettest cookie doughs I've worked with, almost more like a cake batter. So these are twice as big as called for, but that's OK because we like big cookies! You definitely need the 3" space around them! They spread, but puff up nicely. I also opted for the regular sugar, instead of the blend, and it worked fine. Thnx for sharing your recipe, KRice. Made for New Kids on the Block.
