:: Yummy Wholewheat Peanut Butter Cookies!

January 20, 2009 at 12:22 pm 20 comments

There has been a few new Irish food blogs but check out the latest blog I came across CheapEats.ie which is great for spotting shopping bargains on offer across the country! Another cool one particularly for its travel pics is thefood.ie warblings check them out, it’s always great to see new blogs!
This recipe is actually one I wrote for the book. I had toyed with whether or not to include a Sweets chapter, and in the end decided I couldn’t do without. The cookies took a few tries to get the mix right especially using whole wheat flour, but the end result is a chewy sweet cookie which is really tasty. They literally take minutes to make and have quickly become my solution to the TV watching munchies!

Peanut Butter Cookies
These are incredibly tasty little cookies which are so easy to make. Perfect for cooking with kids!

Makes approximately 9 cookies.

4 rounded tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter.
1 large egg.
2/3 cup of dark brown sugar.
1/3 cup of whole wheat flour.
Place the sugar, and flour in a large mixing bowl and combine. With a wooden spoon create a well in the center of the bowl and add the egg and peanut butter. Beat the egg and peanut butter with the flour and sugar until a thick dough forms. If the dough is too moist simply add a little extra flour.  Allow the dough to sit in the fridge for about 15 minutes.
Remove from the fridge and place rounded tablespoons of the dough onto a greased baking sheet.
Bake in the oven at 180oC/ for approximately 15 minutes or until the cookies brown slightly.
Remove from the baking sheet and allow to cool.

    I’ve been making the 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies for a while and wondering how to simply incorporate some WW flour into them. I use 1 cup pb, 2/3 cup sugar and 1 egg, I would have thought you’d need more peanut butter in these. Look fantastic though and the pictures are excellent. I’ll try these out next time.

    I have made this twice now. Added 2 round teaspoons of cocoa powder the 2nd time to good effect.

    I made these today for a memorial day bbq and they were a big hit. They all disappeared very quickly. I only had light brown sugar and they were still great! Thanks so much for the recipe. Easiest cookies ever.

    LOVE these– so easy and delicious. I only had organic unsalted smooth peanut butter, so I added a bit of salt. I would probably slightly reduce the amount of sugar next time– I packed it while measuring and probably didn't need to.
