Peanut Butter Whole Wheat Honey Cookies

My boys have lately started liking peanut butter cookies but have been complaining that the store bought ones are a little too sweet for their liking. I am not a big fan of peanut butter but always have couple of jars of peanut butter at home as I use them to make peanut sauce for noodles and for dipping. The smooth variety though often is left out as I use the chunky ones more often.

Looking for ways to use up the jar of smooth peanut butter, I thought of making cookies. That is when I came to this recipe of using whole wheat flour to make the cookies. I am a big fan of baking with whole wheat and this recipe fit the category of the theme I chose this week. This week I will be making whole wheat dishes for Blogging Marathon and this recipe is my first one for the series.

I love the nutty flavor of wheat flour and that added with peanut butter worked great. The recipe also uses honey and brown sugar and that adds another layer of flavor in the cookies. It was very quick to make a batch of cookies and the boys loved the flavor as they thought the sweetness was just right.


Also I made the cookies egg less by using yogurt as the egg substitute. For soft cookies, yogurt work very well and the result were perfect this time around as well.
