PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

I love a freshly baked peanut butter cookie that’s soft but chewy, with my afternoon coffee. If you are new here, then I must share, I love something sweet with my afternoon coffee. I try and make most of my recipes as “clean” as possible. When I say clean, I mean healthier ingredients.

This recipe doesn’t take much time to put together and bonus, you don’t dirt up very many dishes in getting these made. I wanted this recipe to be one that I keep coming back to. I added flour to this recipe to give the cookies more “fluff”.

For this recipe, I went with whole wheat flour, and I used coconut sugar. If you wanted to add some extra sweetness to these cookies, you could also add some dark chocolate chips. If you didn’t want to add chocolate chips, you could always add in some chopped peanuts.
