Triple Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipe makes 30 cookies

Whatcha Need:

1¼ cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 cup low-fat peanut flour
¼ cup chopped roasted peanuts
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Whatcha Do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. In a medium bowl, beat together brown sugar and peanut butter with a wooden spoon. Beat in 1 egg at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in peanut flour, peanuts, baking soda, vanilla and salt.
  2. Roll dough into 1½-inch balls. Place balls two inches apart on a cookie or baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Use a fork to make criss-cross marks on tops of cookies and to flatten to about ½-inch thickness.
  3. Bake 10 minutes or until cookies are just set. Transfer cookies (still on parchment or foil) to a wire rack; cool completely. (Cookies will firm up upon baking.)

Optional add-ins: If desired, stir ½ cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, and/or golden raisins or dried cranberries into the dough.
