Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipes

So today Belinda was talking about making peanut cookies and now I have a craving for peanut butter cookies… so I present a healthy peanut butter cookie recipe. Remember just cause they are healthier (key word healthier) doesn’t mean you can eat them all at once.

Ingredients:
Dry Stuff

  • 3/4 c whole wheat flour ( I used a little less, adjust depending on the moisture of the batter)
  • 3/4 c oats
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • optional: 1 tsp cinnamon

Moist Stuff

  • 1 c smooth natural peanut butter ( I used 1 ¼ cups)
  • 1/2 c honey (easier with liquid honey)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • optional: 1/3-1/2 c chocolate or carob chips

Preparation:

  1. Combine dry ingredients
  2. Combine moist ingredients
  3. Mix dry and moist ingredients together.
  4. Cool in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. Drop teaspoons of batter on a parchment-lined cookie sheet or baking sheet for cookies.
  6. Flatten with a fork if you like.
  7. Bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes – edges will be slightly browned – be careful not to burn as honey browns fast.
