Whole-Grain Peanut Butter Cookies

Great tasting peanut butter cookies with whole grains and seeds!

Ingredients 

Grinding the flax seeds

  • ¼ cup Stevia
  • ¼ cup brown sugar blend
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons Smart Balance Buttery Spread
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tablespoons ground or partially ground flax seeds - I buy whole seeds and then process them when I am ready to use
  • ½ cup whole-grain flour
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped peanuts

Cookies after baking

Directions


Using a mixer, combine sugars, peanut butter, buttery spread, and egg until creamy. Stir in remaining ingredients. I processed the flax seeds only partially because we like crunch.

Batter after all ingredients mixed in

Preheat oven to 375°. Roll dough into balls and place on baking sheet. Flatten with a fork dipped in water. Bake until golden brown—10 to 12 minutes. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool. Makes about 18 cookies.

Enjoy, and feel free to share this recipe!
