Kim’s Chewy PB2 Cookies

PB2 is a 100% natural powdered peanut butter-or peanut flour. The creators: Bell Plantation, squeeze the oil out of the peanuts, taking 85% of the fat and calories with it. You just mix it with water to get a similar consistency and taste as peanut butter. It’s pretty tasty but not quite as thick and textured as the natural almond and peanut butter we eat. It’s really good for adding peanut butter flavor to baked goods and DELICIOUS in protein shakes. You can order it off their website or search for stores that sell it near you. My gym, Old Town Athletic Club, recently started selling jars of it as well as using it in their protein shakes.
I created these cookies after playing with a hodgepodge of recipes. I took the second-try-batch (minus 1 for the hubby) to women’s bible study and they were scarfed with great gusto…even the slightly over-crisp ones!
