The peanut butter I used was so purely peanut that it didn't even contain salt; neither were my peanuts or butter salted. Consequently, I added a teaspoon of salt and it was right. However, if you are using salted products, you may need to adjust the quantity of salt downwards, considerably.

Recipe Ingredients for Peanut Butter Bear Cookies

1 cup chopped peanuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup dried raisins
1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup candied ginger
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Peanut Butter Bear Cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line 2 cookie trays with parchment paper. Measure out the first 5 ingredients and set them aside.

  2. Cream the butter and beat in the peanut butter. Beat in the Sucanat, the egg and the vanilla. Mix the baking soda and salt* into the flour. Mix the flour into the peanut butter mixture to form a smooth dough.

  3. Mix the first 5 ingredients into the cookie dough. Scoop the dough out with a 1" disher or other small scoop and arrange the cookies thus formed on the prepared cookie trays. Give them room, but they won't spread extravagantly. Flatten the cookies slightly. Bake them for 9 to 11 minutes, until lightly browned. Let them cool for at least 5 minutes on the tray before attempting to remove them to finish cooling.
