Tweaking Jif's Peanut Butter cookies

Yes, I took a stab at these too. I made some slight modifications and my husband couldn't tell the difference. My son gobbled whatever I put in front of him. Win-Win!

3/4 cup Peanut Butter*
1/2 cup Coconut oil
1 1/4 cups coconut sugar
1/2 cup of applesauce
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt

1. Heat oven to 375°F. Combine peanut butter, coconut oil, coconut sugar, applesauce and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. 
2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix just until blended. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2-inches apart onto greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly in a crisscross pattern with tines of fork.**
3. Bake one baking sheet at a time 7 to 8 minutes, or until set and just beginning to brown. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to cooling racks to cool completely.

*You may need to add a tablespoon or two of coconut sugar to compensate for the lack of sugar if you use all natural peanut butter.

**I froze the cookie dough mounds and later baked them at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until the edges start to brown.
