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
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat several large baking sheets with cooking spray.
- Combine the peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
- 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.
- 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!)
