Light Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies taste great and are lighter and less greasy than a lot of peanut butter recipes. I think they have a faint apple-y taste from the juice concentrate, but my dad said he only tasted peanut butter. Either way, I’m a huge fan!

Light Peanut Butter Cookies (taken from Vegetarian Times)

Makes about 60 cookies

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter, preferably all-natural
  • 1 cup apple juice concentrate, thawed and undiluted
  • 1/2 cup sucralose-type sweetener
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix peanut butter, apple juice, sweetener and vanilla until blended but not smooth. In another bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda, and add to peanut butter mixture. Stir until thick. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons onto baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Use fork dipped in water to make crisscross marks on top of each cookie.
Bake for 12 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven and cool on cookie sheets.
