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 was excited to find these without butter! BUT they never set up, and I did wait until they were at a rolling boil and even cooked 2 minutes. They do taste good but now I'm trying to figure out what to do with the gooey piles now....

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.
I think it's so delicious!! It was a bit too soft, but I kept it in the refrigerator overnight and it hardened a bit more. Taste- wise it was great (even though I didn't put in vanilla).
Thank you xgainor for a healthier version of a favorite dessert. Like others mine did not firm up but that happens with the original version from time to time. I like that you don't use butter which cuts out a lot of saturated fat. Hubby said to keep this recipe so I will be making again!
The taste is wonderful, but I, like many other reviewers, was not able to get it to set. They are very gooey!!
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.
