Soooo, for those of you who know me (and particularly those who knew me in second year university), I REALLY love peanut butter. For example, in second year I went through one of the HUMUNGO tubs of PB in TWO MONTHS…yes, you’re thinking of the right one…they usually last a family of 4 about 6 months. In my defense, I was vegetarian for those 2 months and that was my major source of protein…*cough* yes, we’ll go with that.
Anywho, I love PB, but I’ve never really loved peanut butter cookies. I felt like they took away from the essence that is Peanut Butter. However, last night, as I was pulling out all my ingredients to make my No-Bake Choco-PB clusters, I happened to see a so called “Better for you” Peanut Butter cookie recipe on the back of the PB jar that looked kind of awesome. 3 ingredients, 20 min total prep time “better for you” (not sure how, but sounds convincing to me!)…deal!
Holy. Amazeball. These are the ultimate PB cookie. PLUS the are Gluten Free and Lactose Free (not that I care, but I have friends who do!)
NOTE: I only say the “5 min on pan” out of obligation. My hubby and I usually dig in around 2 minutes, cool or not. We also usually burn ourselves, but it’s SO worth it.
