Chunky Peanut Butter Cookies With Wheat Germ
  • 1 cup extra crunchy peanut butter (256 grams)
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar (150 grams)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (114 grams)
  • 1/4 scant cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose four (200 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ (45 grams)
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together first 6 ingredients.
  3. Combine dry ingredients and add to peanut butter mixture. Stir until well blended. If dough seems very soft, put it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Otherwise proceed as directed.
  4. Shape into 1 inch balls and drop onto parchment lined baking sheets. Press down with a moist fork to make criss-crosses, then bake for 10-12 minutes (or until they appear lightly browned around the edges).
  5. Let the cookies cool completely before serving. They are much better when completely cool.
