While peanut butter is not a popular food in France (I’ve never had it there), its origin can apparently be traced back to the Aztecs. I bought my first ever jar a few weeks ago simply because I was dying to finally try peanut butter cookies! Peanut butter is indeed loaded with calories, and so are peanut butter cookies, so remember, everything in moderation! While peanut butter is 50% fat, on the up-side, peanut butter contains lots of good nutrients too, such a protein, dietary fibre and vitamins.
This recipe makes about 15 little cookies. Initially I intended not to use flour for a gluten-free version but the texture of the dough was very oily after I processed it so I ‘saved’ it by adding a little plain flour. They turned out okay, let me know what you think if you do try the recipe at home!
