Here’s a peanut butter cookie recipe that has all of the qualities of a classic homemade cookie but with two twists – healthy fats and whole grains.
Because the essence of a peanut butter cookie is its nutty goodness, using whole wheat flour enhances the nuttiness as well as adding healthy fiber. Using non-trans-fat vegetable spreads increases the healthy fats already present in the nut butter.
Do not overbake these. The cookies will look underdone colorwise on the top but will be totally cooked and just golden brown underneath. Run a couple of cookies on a sheet as a test to see how they perform in your oven. Take them out and let them cool and then adjust your timing accordingly.
