PEANUT BUTTER + HONEY COOKIES
We are always testing out interesting new recipes we find on Pinterest. The other day we came across some cookies that were gluten-free and did not contain any grains and actually looked good, so we tried 'em. Peanut butter cookies with seriously only 4 simple ingredients?!? We were completely surprised when we ended up LOVING them! Plus, the recipe says it only has 36 calories per cookies..can't beat that for a sweet treat. [Note: these do not contain cane sugar, but plenty of honey for sweetening that will certainly raise blood sugar levels]
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Cup Honey
1 TSP Baking Soda
Optional - Add some Cacoa (or coco) powder to add chocolatey flavor. It also adds some thickening to consistency.
Mix the peanut butter + honey first, then add an egg and baking soda. You can either try to put them in sloppy balls like cookies or spread the mixture all out on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes on 350 degrees. They’re delicious & soft! .... a healthier version of peanut butter cookies :) Enjoy!

Just wondering...if I add some coco for a chocolatey flavor, how much would you recommend using/adding? I'm not much of a baker, so I need all the help I can get! Thanks!

Hi Debb - I added some cocoa powder to thicken up the mix a bit and it added some chocolately flavor. It was much, only about a medium size spoon full. Hope that works! Enjoy

I'm making these now. But I'm looking at the calories on the ingredients and I can't see how they are only 36 calories per cookie. Any ideas?
