A healthier version of an old favorite, these peanut butter cookies have much less saturated fat than the original.

"I did some different things. Instead of brown sugaar, I used turbinado. And instead of wheat flour, i just used more all purpose. In my opinion they are too sweet and hardly any peanut butter flavor. "

This recipie was delicious! I had a craving for Peanut butter cookies and had to convince my kids... but when it came out of the oven -they loved it!
I halved the quantity and used oats instead of whole wheat flour (but kept the quantity the same for the full recipie) and used 2 egg whites instead of 1 whole egg.
And I completely forgot the water- but came out great nevertheless!

delicioussss!

These came out delicious! I followed other people's advice, and doubled the amount of peanut butter. The batter came out a little dry so I just added some more water. Baked each batch for exactly 8 minutes and they are soft and chewy! Also, I added 2 tbsp flax seed, to add a little healthy to an otherwise great recipe!

Turned out great

Did as another reviewer suggested and put extra 1/4 cup peanut butter..not sure I needed it. And reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup...also added a couple tsp more water....not sure I needed that either. I baked them for 12 minutes as my husband likes them a bit crispier for dunking, they were crispy on the edges and softer in the center. Will definitely make these again.

Easy to make, super tastes

Pretty tasty, for a lighter PB cookie!

Left out 1/2 cup of the brown sugar, and added a 1/4 cup of PB (we use ADAMS), since a couple of people mentioned they were not terribly peanut-buttery. Dipped the dough balls in the chopped peanuts, then flattened the whole thing with a fork - turned out light and fluffy and delicately peanutty. Kids liked them, so .... works for me :)

To paraphrase - "I changed it around, then I didn't like it" No, I don't think that is a helpful comment.
