"Really Good" Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies are based off of a recipe from allrecipes.com, and were originally named "Peanut butter cookies IX." 


I made them for our Sunday school class and the kids loved them! Aaron and I were big fans as well, and this recipe is worthy enough to be added to our vault. I asked Aaron what we should rename them and his suggestion was, "Really good peanut butter cookies."

Well, there ya have it folks, really good peanut butter cookies. 
Don't be afraid by 100% whole wheat; Aaron lacked faith in my healthy flour, but was pleasantly surprised that there is virtually no difference between all-purpose and whole wheat flour (at least in this recipe).

"Really Good" Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 egg (I used chia seeds in this recipe, click here for directions)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup semisweet, milk, or white chocolate chips (white chocolate chips are divine)
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, white sugar and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, wheat flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Finally, mix in the oats and chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are golden. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. 
*I used chia seeds in this recipe. For cookies I usually use 1 1/2 tbsp ground chia seeds + 4 1/2 tbsp water per egg called for in recipe.
