Applesauce Mud Cookies

Applesauce Mud Cookies



  • 2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 cup sugar substitute
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar substitute
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup 1% buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce


  1. Place the flour in a large mixing bowl. Add the cocoa, sugar substitutes and baking soda. Mix together well being sure all the ingredients is combined. Pour in the buttermilk and stir until the dry mixture is completely moistened. Fold in the applesauce and continue stirring until the batter is thick and very moist. Spray a cookie sheet well with a non stick cooking spray. Set the oven to 350 degrees and allow to heat. Drop 1 mounded Tbsp. at a time of the batter onto the prepared cookie sheet. The mounds should look like clumps of mud and can be slightly flattened with a fork if they mound too high. Bake 9 minutes or until the cookies are firm. Cool completely before storing.
