Clean Eating Peanut Butter Cookies

Clean Eating Peanut Butter Cookies

Some mom's live for the summer and sitting pool side.
This mom my "season" is the holidays
Family getting together...
Creating memories
Being in the kitchen

If going on a "diet" restricted baking I would rebel and would not last
However finding recipes like this one it's a win
Clean Eating Peanut Butter Cookies
Everything in moderation meaning two cookies and giving the rest away or freezing them.
  • 1 1/2 cups natural no salt added creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • sea salt sprinkle
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick mat.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the peanut butter, honey, vanilla and milk.
  3. Add the flour and baking soda and stir until just combined.  (If the dough is too sticky to work with, chill in the fridge for 15 minutes or so.)
  4. Form the dough into round balls (about tablespoon sized) and place on the baking sheet.  Gently flatten with a fork and sprinkle the tops with sea salt.
    Gently flatten with a fork
  5. Bake for approximately 11 minutes or until set.  Let the cookies cool for about 5 minutes before removing from the pan.

Makes 24 cookies
