Chef's Note

If you want a more interesting texture, substitute crunchy peanut butter for smooth.

Peanut butter is a good source of vegetable protein, fiber, folic acid, minerals, vitamin E, good monounsaturated fatty acids and calories. A simple spoonful of peanut butter can provide children with the energy they need during the day. So when you find the good taste of peanut butter in a homemade cookie, it’s a double treat.
