Here’s a peanut butter cookie that doesn’t call for butter. The recipe is from the Moosewood recipe archive which is worth checking out even if you don’t want peanut butter cookies. I haven’t formed an opinion on these cookies yet, as I’m still a little biased towards One Bowl Criss-Cross Peanut Butter Cookies.
Update: I don’t see the no-butter recipe in the Moosewood peanut butter cookies in the collection anymore, but I guess it doesn’t matter since I like the One Bowl Criss-Cross Peanut Butter Cookies better.
I have to try these – I love peanut butter cookies.
Okay, you have to promise to update your post when you decide how you feel about these cookies. They certainly look delicious! Thick and chewy. I love PB!
Anna, you’re right about the printing/baking, but I did just post some really yummy no-bake healthy peanut butter, Wheaties cookies I made the other day!
This is the one I use. It sounds like the one you saw. I sometimes use less sugar or use a combo of brown sugar and granulated sugar, but these cookies always turn out great.
They work best when you use a peanut butter like Skippy Natural or Jif Natural or Smart Balance — one that’s not super sweet.
Anna – i saw one cookie recipe that was basically: 1 cups peanut butter; 1 cups sugar; 1 egg. no flour. i tried it and it turned out okay, but i had no basis for peanut butter cookies so i can’t really judge; maybe you know more about it?
also, what do you do with the majority of cookies that you bake each day?
Lisa, I actually used 1/2 cup of peanut butter and still didn’t find the cookies peanut butter enough.
Katrina, it sounds like you are doing more printing than baking.
Cate, it looks like you haven’t posted the recipe yet. Can’t wait to see what yours is like. I have a few here, so I’m hoping it’s new and better.
Just made a new peanut butter cookie recipe with no flour in it and they practically melt in your mouth. These look great!
You know I just printed the recipe. They sure look good. sigh jk
I checked both recipes (always interested in peanut butter cookies) and the Moosewood recipe calls for a very low ratio of peanut butter to flour, so it would seem to me, a bit lacking in peanut butter flavor. I would definitely use your preferred recipe, which looks like it has lots of peanut flavor. Peanut butter is a good fat!
