Very impressive! I wasn't sure how these would turn out. Very chocolate-y and the peanut butter is a great component. I used some crunchy peanut butter than I accidently purchased. I sifted some cinnamon on top. Would absolutely make this again!
I found the cookies to be too soft and wouldn't firm up even after refrigerating. They did have a nice chocolate taste and I like the fact that they were healthier.

Scrumptious! I'm trying to wean my husband off white sugar and butter as much as possible, and this healthy version of his favorite cookie helps tremendously!
For the reviewers who tried this recipe and didn't have firm, chewy cookies: you have to bring the chocolate mixture to a ROLLING boil. When it still breaks bubbles on the surface even during stirring, then start the 1-minute countdown. I did that, and left the pot on the back burner (set to Warm) for a half hour while my hubby was grabbing oats from the store. The cookies came out perfectly.
Also, if you want your nice no-bakes a little on the naughty side, add a tablespoon of Nutella. ;) For those of you not used to the applesauce flavor, the Nutella helps mask the taste and add a touch of richness without a ton of calories.
These are worth it only if you are trying to eat a healthier version of a no-bake; otherwise, go with the original recipe because the applesauce does give it a different taste. For a healthy recipe, however, this is really good.
Maybe I did something wrong, but it never got hard enough to take off the waxed paper. It was gummy. I even put it in the refridgerater hoping it would harden up, but it didn't. I did it exact to the recipe.
