  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges firm up and start to brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

The first batch of these cookies were very light and fluffy, not the traditional gooey peanut butter cookie (makes sense given the healthy swaps!). I also found the peanut flavour was quite light. I added an additional 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the remaining half of the dough to make the cookies more dense and peanutty. Read More

Great recipe! The dough is smooth and sticky. I added a little oats, chocolate chips, and peanuts to mine. Turned out great! Read More
