This is my version of peanut butter cookies with a twist, hope you give it a try.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS

STEP ONE:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the peanut butter, egg and vanilla extract and beat well.

STEP TWO:

In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flours, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.

STEP THREE:

Drop the batter in rounded tablespoons onto an greased cookie sheet and flatten slightly with a fork. Bake in the preheated oven for 14—16 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom and around the edges. Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve warm or at room temperature.
