Healthier Peanut Butter Cookies. ....No Flour, No Butter

These peanut butter cookies are different then regular ones. They don't use flour or butter.  Your probably think yeah but they probably aren't very tasty.  Let me tell you I was unsure how good these would end up tastes ( I've tried healthy versions of cookies before and most came out tasting so bad you have to spit it out of your mouth ) but I was pleasantly surprised. They are pretty dang good! They even passed the boys approval. My middle one thought he was slick and kept sneaking them off the plate. I walk into the kitchen and there's an empty plate with crumbs left : )

Healthier Peanut Butter Cookies
  •  1 cup of peanut butter (any kind you like regular, natural, homemade)
  •  1/2 cup of sugar
  •  1 egg
  •  1 tsp vanilla
  •  1/2 tsp baking powder

*This makes  about 14 cookies*

Preheat oven to 350°. In medium bowl combined all ingredients and mix together. Take a spoonful of dough and roll into a ball. Place on a ungreased baking sheet. Take a fork and flatten making a crosshatch pattern across the top. Bake around 10 minutes. Let the cookies rest for 5 minutes before removing from the baking sheet.

Enjoy they really are pretty dang good! If you try them out let me know what you think : )

    1. Thanks Stacey : ) The edge has a little crunch to it and the center is softer. If you cook it a little longer then the entire cookie gets crunchy. Hope that helps : )
