Flat Belly Diet ~ Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies

These could seriously get me through this entire diet!  Everyone in my family LOVES them!  And there is nothing like a latte with 3 of these cookies as my afternoon snack (and sweet treat fix!).  You can eat  3 of these cookies with 1 cup of milk (which I put with 1 shot of espresso) as a Flat Belly snack!  Thank you, I’ve died and gone to Heaven!!  Oh, and they are super fast to make too!  Bonus!!

From the Flat Belly Diet Family Cookbook

8 Servings (3 cookies each) / 315 Calories / MUFA: Peanut Butter


1 cup natural unsalted crunchy peanut butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
All purpose flour for shaping cookies


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Coat several large baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. Combine the peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
  3. Shape the dough into 24 balls and arrange on the sheets.  Dip the tines of a fork into flour and gently press a criss cross pattern into the top of each cookie.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom.  Transfer to a rack to cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. (Next time I plan to do a double batch and store in the freezer to have on hand!)
