Assalamu 'Alaikum ladies,
With all that talk about peanut butter cookies last month I was on a mission to find a healthy recipe. I ended up just finding a recipe in my Better Homes Cookbook and alternating/modifying the ingredients to come up with something healthier. As as a side note, regular peanut butter, like the Jiff's or Kraft etc has tonssss of preservatives added to it. When you compare the ingredients of the regular peanut butter and Natural butter you'll see the difference. Natural PB just has peanuts and sometimes salt as the ingredients, where the other stuff is loaded with plain old junk. And the best part is the Natural stuff tastes A LOT better.
HODA'S HEALTHY PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
1/2 Cup butter softened
1/2 Cup peanut butter
2/3 Cup honey
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups of flour
- Mix all the ingredients except for the flower together (using a spoon). Once the butter has mixed in somewhat with the other ingredients use a blender to blend all the ingredients together. Blend until you see consistency in the batch. Gradually add the flour. Make little balls and flatten with a fork (makes a nice design too ;)) then bake for 12-14 min at 350. Cookies will almost look like they're not done, but once they cool taking them out at this time is what will keep them soft.
