Some mornings are just Peanut Butter Cookie mornings. No use in trying to avoid it, right? Here’s a super simple, somewhat healthy recipe (and vegan too!) for some quick Nut Butter Cookies taken from Raising Vegetarian Children.
Nut Butter Cookies
– 1/2 c pure maple syrup
– 1/2 c nut butter (crunchy or smooth)
– 1 t vanilla extract
– 1 c whole wheat pastry flour
Preheat oven to 350. Oil two baking sheets with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper. In a large bowl, cream together wet ingredients. When smooth, stir in flour to form a stiff dough. Mix thoroughly. Form into 24 walnut-size balls and place on baking sheets. Flatten cookies with tines of fork (perfect activity for a silly two year old boy!). Bake one sheet at a time on the center rack for 12 minutes or until bottom of cookies are lightly browned.
