Simple Peanut Butter Cookies - with a healthy twist

There are times when life calls for simpler things.  Perhaps a piece of toast with jam, a hot cup of green tea, or just some plain ol' ground up peanuts…with brown sugar :)


For the pure peanut butter cookie purist out there.  Can we be friends??

This cookie is a mere four ingredients. Wheat free and no butter.  And since I just love brown sugar (I could eat it plain, so what), I like to use it instead of white sugar. 


Now this cookie is totally my style.  You’ll dig it too.  

Natural Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1 cup Smucker’s Natural Chunky Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar (or decrease the sugar and use 2/3 or ¾ cup)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 egg white
  • dash of salt


- In a large bowl combine all the ingredient and whisk them together until combined. 

- Pop the dough in the fridge for about 15 minutes to let the dough set and harden a bit. Then scoop out balls with a cookie scoop and place on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle the tops of the dough balls with a little brown sugar.

- Bake at 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

- Let cool and enjoy…or just eat one right away and burn the roof of your mouth. Totally worth it.


Peanuts are energy for the good life. 

So eat them!
