Peanut Butter Cookies

22 Feb


20120222-223438.jpgIt’s my colleague Ken’s birthday tomorrow, and he is a fan of peanut butter (I know he doesn’t like coconut or I would have tried to sneak some in)… He is also a pretty healthy-living guy, so I wanted to respect that in his cookie. So this is a totally from scratch recipe with no butter, no eggs, and only whole wheat flour. Good times, ya know?

They came out crisp on the outside but soft on the inside, just the way they should be.


  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • 4 tbsp splenda sugar blend
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 c peanut butter
  • 1/2 c fat-free vanilla yogurt


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Whisk dry ingredients together
  • Mix peanut butter and yogurt with an electric beater. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. If it’s too dry, add a spoon or two more yogurt.
  • Spoon onto baking sheet lined with parchment, press down with fork
  • Bake for 10-15 min, eat with milk!

I rolled the cookies in sugar afterwards, but you might want to roll them in sugar before baking! (I forgot about that part)
