Substitute Peanut Butter With Apple Sauce

As odd as it sounds, I am wanting to substitute Peanut Butter with Apple Sauce in a biscuit recipe. The recipe calls for 1/2 cup. Do you think a direct substitute would work? I'd be grateful for your thoughts.

no., applesauce contains far more water. and no fat to no crispen up the biscuits

Hmm. That sounds like a fair and reasonable point! Thanks for your thoughts.

Anyone else?

You can't substitute one for the other. Peanut butter is starchy and fatty, apple sauce is wet and fibrous.

Is this a wind-up?

No it isn't!

I think you can do it for a loaf or cake but not biscuits that I have heard of.
