Yummy peanut butter cookies that the kids will love, while using good quality organic ingredients!

Prep time:
Cook time:


  • 1 c. unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1 c. creamy organic UN-sweetened peanut butter
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. sugar (I used raw sugar)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 c all purpose flour (I used whole wheat pastry)
  • 1/2 tsp finely ground sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  1. Cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars. Then beat in the eggs.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder. Stir that into the batter. Mix well and then refrigerate for an hour or so.
  3. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Flatten each ball with a fork - classic peanut butter cookie pattern. Add carob or organic chocolate chips on top before baking if you like that extra something...
  4. Bake at 375ºF for about 10-11 minutes or so. Cool on a rack.

      Whatever application they use auto-determines all that. But it is not that unusual of a cookie recipe in the amount of butter, etc. I can't imagine that all peanut butter cookies are 4000 calories (per how much?). :D

        Is that right about the calories being the 4000's ?

          Oh, it looks like it takes the WHOLE recipe and calculate how much based on if you ate every single cookie at once...whereas I figure most cookie recipes figure a cookie or two is a "serving"?
