Sweet Honey! Peanut Butter Cookies
A soft chewy yummy easy-to-make classic treat that's packed with whole grains, sweetened with honey - and butter-free :-)
*3/4 c whole light spelt flour
3/4 c oats
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
optional: 1 tsp cinnamon
* You can use regular wheat flour too. A gluten-free flour mix would probably work here as well - if anyone tries please let us know how it goes in the comments.
1 c smooth natural peanut butter
1/2 c honey (easier with liquid honey)
2 tsp vanilla
optional: 1/3-1/2 c chocolate or carob chips
Mix wet and dry well. Drop heaping teaspoons of batter on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. (I use an insulated aluminum sheet.) Flatten with a fork if you like. Bake at 375* for 8-12 minutes - edges will be slightly browned - be careful not to burn as honey browns fast.
*Bake at 350 if using a thin, uninsulated, or dark metal baking sheet - or if your oven is a bit on the hot side.
