I am always looking for ways to bake healthier versions of the traditional stuff we love... I just created this recipe and my family loves them... Even my picky 10 yr old. It's good for when you want a snack but do not want to go overboard..
makes about 4 dozen
1/2 cup fat peanut butter
1/4 cup or butter
3/4 cup brown sugar or Splenda Brown
3 Tbs. fat-free milk
1 Tbs. vanilla
1 2/3 cups flour (1 c whole wheat 2/3 unbleached )
1 Tbs Flaxseed (optional)
4 Tbs of dark choc. chips
2 Tbs of wheat germ
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, mix peanut butter and butter until creamed. Mix in brown sugar. Then Beat in egg, milk, honey and vanilla. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt.
Form a ball about the size of a teaspoon and place about 2" apart on cookie sheet with your fingers flatten, the cookies slightly or spread the entire batter on a cookie sheet for bars. Bake at 350 degree for about 10 to 15 minutes. Cool.
