Peanut Butter Fluffies

The other night I was craving peanut butter cookies, so I threw together a few ingredients and made one for myself in the toaster oven. It turned out so well, that I decided to try to recreate it. I tend to like my cookies on the fluffy side, and not flat and crispy, so that's why I named these 'fluffies'. Let me warn you, though; these are definitely not low calorie but they are quite delicious.

Peanut Butter Fluffies

1 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 C + 2 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1/2 C Water

1. Preheat oven to 375 Degrees.
2. Mix dry ingredients together. Add in vanilla extract and peanut butter and combine.  Then add water and stir until dough is thoroughly mixed.
3. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out cookie dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Press lightly down with fork, making cross marks on top of the cookie.
3. Bake for 15 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool for at least 10 to 15 minutes. Cookies should be fluffy and moist in the middle.

Makes 12-14 Cookies


  1. The look delicious Tracie - I think I'll try the recipe this weekend for the family. I love "fluffy" cookies too. :)

  2. Let me know how you like them! :)

  3. Ok Tracie, my daughter made them tonight for our after dinner treat and they were delicious!!!!!!! My mom, dad, brother and nephew were over and everyone loved them. They were "fluffy", just as promised. Now I have to stop myself from eating too many. :)

    Thanks for the recipe - it will be a favorite in our house from now on.

  4. So happy that they were a hit with you and your family!

    My parents actually asked me to make more for them this weekend, so I used a smaller scoop - which made double the amount. Smaller cookies, but you could eat more and not feel as guilty :)
