    PiceSeasGirl's Note:

    This recipe originates from My Vegan Cookbook. http://www.myvegancookbook.com/blog/ One of my favs! Thank you my Vegan Cookbook for finally giving me a tasty AND healthy peanut butter cookie recipe :) This wholesome peanut butter cookie recipe trims the fat, calories and prep time. And the taste is divine! The only flour in this recipe is a 1/2 Cup of Whole Wheat Flour, but you would never guess. Don't get out a sauce pan, and you can forget about dragging out a mixer. All you need is a mixing bowl and a spoon! It's the perfect go to cookie recipe when you need a sweet fix and you're too tired to work for it.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325°F.
    2. 2
      Then dump ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir. You will really need to work at getting the ingredients mixed well. I do a downward smashing motion with my spoon as I stir. You could even put your hands into the dough and kneed a little.
    3. 3
      Drop 1 Tablespoon size mounds onto a greased cookie sheet, about 1 ½ inches apart. Smash them down with a fork. Then sprinkle with course sugar if you like.
    4. 4
      Bake for 10 - 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      After they are baked let them cool for 15 minutes before you dig into They will be soft out of the oven and crisp up as they cool.

      I love, love LOVE peanut butter and am often hard-pressed to find a healthy, low-fat (and easy) peanut butter recipe. These cookies definitely satisfy my peanut butter craving without making me feel guilty! I make a batch of these for breakfast each week (they're great with coffee.) To keep the fat and sugar content even lower I use Peanut Wonder peanut spread instead of creamy peanut butter, 1 tablespoon of Brummel & Brown Yogurt Spread with 2 tablespoons of applesauce in lieu of the canola oil, and Splenda brown sugar. Also, I use wheat bran instead of flax seeds because they're generally cheaper. Although I've never made the original recipe without these substitutions, I can say that the difference is probably marginal as these cookies are AWESOME and every time I bring them to work people ask me for them :) Love them!!!

If you like this cookie go to myvegancookbook.com, there are other low fat cookie recipes there that are just as good as this one.

      These cookies are delicious. I've made them several times, in fact I make them once a week for my husband's lunches. Healthier than anything you can buy. Only thing I substituted was Agave Syrup for the maple syrup as that's what I had on hand.
