I’m not a cake eater. Nor brownies or cupcakes (don’t hate).
I love cookies.
I love peanut butter.
love devour peanut butter cookies. I usually make a super unhealthy version of peanut butter cookies. They are oh so yummy but I won’t even tell you how much sugar is in them. I figured it was time to make smarter choices so I decided to make a healthier version. Recipe is adapted from a weight watchers recipe book that I can’t find the name of.

- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 4 tbls unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/3 cup brown sugar. packed
- 1/2 cup peanut butter chips (adds sweetness)
Step 1: Combine flours, salt, baking soda in bowl and set aside.
Step 2: Mix butter and peanut butter. Beat in egg, brown sugar, and vanilla.
Step 3: Gradually add flour mix to peanut butter mix. Mix until combined.
Step 4: Stir in peanut butter chips.
Step 5: Preheat oven to 350.
Step 6: Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough on greased cookie sheet (I always use foil or parchment paper-easy cleanup!).
Step 7: Press in criss-cross with fork.
Step 8: Bake for 12-15 mins, until bottoms are browned. Cool on wire rack.
