Peanut Butter Cookies


I was amazingly impressed by this recipe!! It's from the "Set for Life" cookbook, which has healthier recipes in it. Look at the ingredients...! (yes it still has lots of sugar though) But Chad and I really liked the cookies (esp. the dough!) Chad doesn't even know that they're made with whole wheat flour or oats!! I've learned not to say anything, or else he'll say they'd be better with just white flour.

1/4 c. margarine
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs. water
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. quick oats
1 tsp soda

Cream margarine, sugars, egg, peanut butter, vanilla, and water. Add dry ingredients, and mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Press thumb or forks into center of each cookie. Bake in a 350 oven for 8-10 min. or until starting to get a little brown, but still soft when you touch the middle. Cool for a few min. on pan, then move to wire racks.

Makes about 22 cookies
