Author Notes: These healthy peanut butter cookies are soft, chewy, and packed with peanut butter flavor
~ Adapted from 101cookbooks

Makes: 24 cookies

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter (I used chunky)
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla paste (or vanilla extract)
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a separate larger bowl combine the peanut butter, maple syrup, olive oil, and vanilla.
  4. Pour the flour mixture over the peanut butter mixture and stir until barely combined (still a bit dusty looking)
  5. Let sit for five minutes, give one more quick stir (just a stroke or two)
  6. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Press down on each one gently with the back of a fork.
  7. (** Note: This is a loose batter, so if you’re set on doing criss-crosses, go ahead and chill the batter for an hour or so before this step)
  8. Bake for 10-11 minutes ... keeping an eye on them so they don’t over bake .. or they'll be dry.
  9. Let cool five minutes and transfer to a cooling rack.
