Spelt flour bakes into a slightly darker cookie (photo), whole wheat pastry flour is slightly blonder - more traditional in appearance in the end. Finish the cookies with chopped nuts or a sprinkling of flaky salt. I'd also recommend seeking out a peanut butter that is well combined, and not super-oily (extra slick) looking - to avoid problems with the cookie batter.

Recipe Ingredients for Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour, spelt flour, or unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt (fine grain)
1/4 cup chunky natural peanut butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1.33 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Peanut Butter Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.

  3. In a separate larger bowl combine the peanut butter, maple syrup, olive oil, and vanilla. Stir until combined.

  4. Pour the flour mixture over the peanut butter mixture and stir until barely combined - still a bit dusty looking.

  5. Let sit for five minutes, give one more quick stir, just a stroke or two.

  6. Now drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets.

  7. Press down on each one gently with the back of a fork.

  8. It's a loose batter, so if you're set on doing criss-crosses, go ahead and chill the batter for an hour or so before this step.

  9. Bake for 7-10 minutes - but don't over bake or they will be dry. Let cool five minutes and transfer to a cooling rack.
