Ginger Miso Peanut Butter Cookies
The combination of miso and peanut butter is one that's intrigued me for a while. I've experimented with different versions of miso peanut butter cookies for some time now... and recently: miso, peanut butter, and ginger - wow! The combination of sweet, savory, and spicy is pretty awesome :-) A Japanese take on classic peanut butter cookies:
Health notes: These addictive exotic treats just happen to be dairy-free and gluten-free. Packed with peanuts, these cookies have a substantial amount of protein, minerals, and healthy fat. Ginger is great for the immune system and digestion, and cinnamon has a bunch of health benefits, including the ability to help moderate blood-sugar levels. These cookies are really sweet, and by sweet I mean delicious *and* sugary, though they're not as sugary-sweet as traditional peanut butter cookies.
