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, 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.
At my worst (200 pounds) I remember towards the end, right before I realized I had to do something about my weight I was on a peanut butter cookie making loop. The peanut butter cookie recipe I was making was insanely bad. They contained 1 cup of shortening, 2 cups of sugar (one white and one brown), 2 eggs, 1 cup of peanut butter and 3 cups of white flour. What the hell was I thinking? These days I can’t even imagine doing that to my body! And why would I or you? These are BETTER than anything with a bucket of shortening, in taste and texture.
