Beth's Peanut Butter cookies (first attempt)
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Elisabeth Freeman)
1 cup unbleached white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups natural peanut butter
2/3 cup honey
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup ground flax (from about 1/2 cup flax seed)
3/4 cup water
Preheat the oven to 350.
Mix the ground flax and water and have someone stir it with a whisk
while you mix the other stuff. Mix everything else together. I had to
do this by hand as it was too stiff for my mixer. Add the ground flax
and mix it up more. Make small balls and put them on a cookie sheet (I
used Pam to keep from sticking) and squish down with a fork. Cook for
I liked the way these came out, although one person who tried them said
they came out like a muffin rather than a cookie, perhaps because I used
whole wheat flour. Also they aren't as sweet as some cookies, but I
like that as I find many cookies too sweet.
Thanks to Toki for the flax idea - it worked great!!!
