Do you love peanut butter? Oh man I do! It's one of my healthy food staples and I use it and other nut butters in all sorts of my baked treat recipes... including this one!
And I must warn you, these Peanut Butter Cookies are beyond amazing!
So rich and creamy, I seriously can't believe they're actually good for you too... But they are!
All it took was a few simple level up swaps to make these amazing cookies delicious AND nutritious.
Plus you just need four simple ingredients to whip up a batch. Simple and satisfying for the WIN! In fact, I think I'm better to go whip up a quick batch for the weekend right now...
1 C creamy or crunchy natural peanut butter
1/2 C honey
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place peanut butter in medium size bowl and microwave approximately 30 seconds (until easily stirred).
Add honey and vanilla and stir well.
In a small bowl lightly beat the egg with a fork, whisk or hand mixer, stir into peanut butter mixture until well combined.
Use a cookie scoop to place 1-2Tbsp. of dough onto a baking sheet (I prefer a cookie scoop for this due to the texture of the batter, but you can also use a large spoon), flatten each ball slightly.
Bake 12-15min (until the edges turn a light golden brown), remove from oven and while cookies are still warm use a fork to create the criss cross pattern on top.
Allow cookies to cool 2 or so minutes on sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.
Eat and Enjoy!
