This is a relatively nutritious cookie made with peanut butter, oats and nuts.
  • 3/4 cup canola oil or your favorite vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar (I used light)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup chopped cranberries (or chocolate chips)
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts (or any other nut)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 and have ready a couple of ungreased baking sheets.
  2. With a mixing spoon, beat together oil & peanut butter. Add sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt & cinnamon. Beat in eggs & vanilla. Stir in flour; then stir in oats, cranberries and nuts.
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls' or level tablespoons onto the ungreased baking sheets and bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. I haven't baked all my dough yet, but the yield is probably around 36 cookies.
If you use a natural peanut butter or one that's slightly runny, you may need to chill the dough just enough so that it holds its shape when scooped.
