If you like slightly soft and chewy peanut butter cookies (as opposed to crisp and crunchy ones), then this is the recipe for you. These cookies have a rich peanut flavor which is accented by a dash of molasses.
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats (do not use instant or quick oats)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup extra crunchy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon dark robust-flavored molasses (do not use blackstrap)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter 2 large (16-by-14-inch) nonstick baking sheets.
Mix first 3 ingredients in small bowl. Using electric mixer, beat peanut butter, both sugars, butter, egg, molasses and vanilla in large bowl until well blended, about 1 minute. On low speed, beat in dry ingredients just until blended (do not over beat). Mix in peanuts.
Using about 3 tablespoons dough for each, drop 9 mounds of dough on each sheet, spacing evenly apart. Bake for 8 minutes. Reverse cookie sheets and continue baking until golden brown, about 8 minutes longer. Cool cookies on sheets 5 minutes. Using metal spatula, transfer cookies to racks and cool completely. (Can be made 2 days ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature).
