Chocochip Peanut Butter Cookies Made With Oil (Not Marg)

My friend Judy Montagu has a cooking column in the local English paper (I may have mentioned that before). Baking well without margarine has become something of a holy grail here in Israel, and we're always on the lookout for a recipe without those bad-for-you fats that actually works. In Judy's last column she's finally found a cookie worthy of posting. She credits her friend Alice Jonah for the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the first four ingredients, then mix in everything else.

  3. Place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and criss-cross each cookie with a fork.
  4. Bake at 180 degrees C (350 F) for 10-12 minutes.

Good. Used coconut oil instead of canola, 3/4 C brown sugar, and 1/2 C peanut butter - some of it was crunchy -my son and his friend liked them, I thought they were a bit dry, maybe because of the crunchy peanut butter. I am going to make more and add another egg this time. Will update

5 stars because my grandson really likes these. My changes: 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1-1/4 cup flour, no oatmeal. I like the texture the oil gives them. GOOD, Mirj! Thanks . . . Janet
