sneaky peanut butter cookies

Sophie and I are gearing up to go to the Haines Fair - and camping for six nights in Haines!

Today I am busy baking snacks to take along with us. These peanut butter cookies are delicious and also sneakily (almost) healthy.

Sneaky Peanut Butter Cookies (adapted from The Fiddlehead Cookbook)

1 stick + 4 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup whole grain flour (I used Bob's Red Mill's gluten-free all purpose flour)
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream butter and sugars together. Add egg, vanilla, and peanut butter, beating after each addition. Mix together dry ingredients, then add to butter mixture and stir until completely combined. Spoon dough onto cookie sheet, then flatten with a fork dipped in sugar.

Bake at 350F for about 12 minutes.
