Apple Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 27 minutes
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 16


  • 1 Cup Creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 Cup Packed light brown sugar
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Cup All-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking soda
  • 3 Cups crisp rice cereal
  • 1/2 Cup Raisins


  • Heat oven to 350 . Line baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly spray with cooking spray.
  • In large bowl, beat peanut butter and brown sugar with electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add eggs and applesauce; beat until smooth. Add flour and baking soda; beat until flour is incorporated and no streaks of white remain. Add cereal and raisins; mix on low speed to combine.
  • Shape dough into golf ball-size balls (about 1/4 cup each). Place 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Press balls lightly to flatten slightly.
  • Bake in 350 oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Cool on baking sheets on wire racks 1 to 2 minute to firm slightly. Remove to racks; cool completely. Store in airtight container.


Always cool the baking sheets before baking more cookies. A hot baking sheet will melt the dough and cookie edges may burn or cookies can lose their shape.
