The Best Peanut Butter Cookies

We love our sweet treats in the Janis household, even though we try not to eat too many of them.  If I do make them I try to use a few healthier ingredients to make them “not as bad,” but we all know they are called treats for a reason!  I just made a batch of these cookies yesterday to end our weekend off right, and I’d love to share this simple recipe with you.


  • 1/2 cup grass fed butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large bowl, combine butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar.  Then add in the egg and vanilla and keep mixing.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together baking soda, salt, and whole wheat flour.  Slowly add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture until well combined.
  4. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and arrange them on a lined baking sheet.  Take a fork a flatten each ball of dough just a little bit.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes, and allow to cool.
