My husband really deserved something for his birthday treat today (he’ll also be receiving the traditional cheesecake later this week), and these are total keepers! These cookies were a hit today with everyone that tried them, including the neighbors down the street. I can honestly say I’ve never put so much peanut butter into one recipe, but they are my new favorite cookie. 🙂
1-2/3 cups all-natural peanut butter
2 cups Sucanat or raw sugar
2 large eggs
1 egg white
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp vanilla
1-1/2 sea salt
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats*
1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 cup dark raisins or dark chocolate chips (optional)
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheetings with parchment paper or Silpat sheets
- Cream the peanut butter, Olive Butter Spread, Sucanat and eggs together in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the honey, vanilla and sea salt.
- Use a large wooden spatula or your clean hands to work in the flour and oats until well combined. Add raisins and walnuts if desired. Mix well.
- Shape the dough into large balls and press into flat cookies. Place them on the baking sheets and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
- Cool on wire racks.
