With the weather slowly turning nice to us, coffee and tea breaks have become a must! But tea time comes with high-carb tea cakes and cookies, especially store bought ones. But fret not, we have a simple hack for that - Whole Wheat Peanut Spread Cookies - ones you can make at home in almost no time. These peanut spread cookies not only make a great addition to your tea time, they also add a punch of protein to your snack.
So, here's how you go about this fun recipe:
All you need:
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powde
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup High Protein Peanut Spread
1⁄3 cup light butter spreadable
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine the High Protein Peanut Spread and tub light butter and beat until smooth.
- Add the sugar and egg and beat until combined.
- Add in flour mixture and beat until all the flour is combined.
- Shape the dough into small 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Press the balls flat with the tines of a fork, making a criss-cross pattern on the top of each cookie (remember to wipe off fork bottom every so often or the cookies will start sticking to it).
- Bake at 180° C for 10 to 15 minutes, until the edges are barely browned.
- Remove from sheet and cool.
You can make around 45 cookies with this list!
