Whole Wheat Chocolate PB Cookies

February 28, 2011

I have the most lovely friend, L.  We get together a couple of mornings a month for some mama-chat time.  Our boys play while we talk babywearing and sip coffee and tea.  These get-togethers most always involve some baked goods as well.  While making plans a couple of weeks ago, L told me she was bringing “the best cookies ever” with her.  She wasn’t kidding!  These cookies are seriously satisfying (and bite-size)!

Whole Wheat Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
makes approximately 4 dozen cookies

  • 1 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/3 C Oats
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 C Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 C Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1/4 C Honey
  • 1 C Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 5 oz. Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line cookie sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  2. Mix flour, oats, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.
  3. Mix peanut butter, butter, honey and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a mixing bowl for use with a hand mixer).  Add egg and mix until nice and fluffy.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix.  Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Refrigerate for approximately 30 minutes, until dough firms up a bit.
  6. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls (I use a small cookie scoop) and bake at 350 F for 8-9 minutes.  Be sure not to over-bake!
  7. Let cool, share, and enjoy!

Notes:

  • The original recipe calls for dark brown sugar.  Since I used stronger flavored honey (buckwheat), I chose to use light brown sugar.  If you have a lighter honey (such as clover), you could always add a bit of molasses to light brown sugar to make dark brown sugar.  I would probably add a Tbs or so.
  • 5 oz of chocolate chips is approximately 1/2 a store-bought bag.

    These sound similar to the oatmeal peanut butter cookies that I make. When I don’t put chocolate in them I’ve been known to eat them for breakfast on crazy days. (:

      I’ve had to put my cookies for breakfast days behind me now that O is so happy to imitate… That doesn’t mean I don’t sneak one after breakfast when no one is looking though! ;)
