Get ready to satisfy your peanut butter craving and get some vegetables with these healthy cookies.
In the mood for some peanut butter galore? Want to slake your cravings for some good old-fashioned peanut butter crunch? Look no further. I am pleased to bring you Peanut Butter & Veggie Nut Crunch Cookies with Peanut Butter Crunch Puffs.
I love peanut butter—who doesn’t? There are many other nut butters in the world, but peanut butter is the one we knew first and were brought up on since we were kids. We especially remember eating it in sandwiches or straight of the jar (and may still do!).
I am sure there are many variations of baked peanut butter cookie recipes out there. But I always liked to incorporate more than just peanut butter and protein. I like to have my vegetables too, to make it more complete and guilt free, of course. And so, to best describe this, it would be like having peanut butter, a nut bar, crunchy peanut butter cereal chunks, and a side of roasted veggies chips all in one nicely baked cookie (a lot more delicious than you may think!). Sure, I could have made these raw, but baking them seems to bring out more of the gourmet flavor, not to mention the utter crunchiness of the lot. So go ahead and try them out. These are also great for on-the-go.
