"These cookies are wonderful, and good for you too! I prefer to use real butter but margarine can be substituted. Wheat germ can also be substituted for the wheat bran. My two year old loves these and I feel less guilty letting him eat them." — evieg17

butter or margarine, softened
natural peanut butter
sifted whole wheat flour
dry milk powder
These were so good! I did make a few changes, though: I omitted the milk powder, added a cup of oatmeal and 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and used 1/4 cup margarine and 1/4 cup applesauce. I used wheat germ instead of wheat bran. And I used egg replacer instead of an egg. They are excellent, quite soft, and just the right amount of sweet. Actually, the next time I make them I think I'll leave out the brown sugar because I think they would be sweet enough without it. I would love to try them with some dried cherries and golden raisins, too!
dry and yucky.
My son loves these. I let him eat these for breakfast. My dad loves these. (He's diabetic). My friend who loves peanut butter loves these and asked for the recipe right away! I did add 1/2 c. oatmeal for the consistency and 1 banana for the yum factor. You cannot tell they're sugar free. You can't even really tell they're health-nut cookies b/c of the strong peanut butter taste/smell.
I can't eat just one! I subbed unsweetened applesauce for half of the butter, used chunky PB, and threw in a couple dashes of ground ginger. Outstanding!
I've made these twice. Once with the milk powder and once without. These are definitely tastier when the milk powder is used.
Thanks so much for this recipe. I'm always looking for healthy cookie recipes for my 16 month old son. I added one very ripe banana and 1/4 to 1/2 cup oatmeal. I also substituted wheat germ for the bran. Very yummy. I made them for my boy, but I ended up eating them too!!
I think these are a very good, not-too-sweet cookie. I am trying new recipes to give to my toddler instead of the processed foods, and this was a favorite. I did make half a batch as directed, and then added 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and that made an incredible difference. Yum.
I loved these cookies! Per other suggestions, I used applesauce instead of butter but won't do that again since the batter was too runny & the cookies were too soft. I'll probably use 1/4 cup applesauce & 1/4 cup butter instead or just all butter. I used wheat germ instead of wheat bran & added 1 banana to the batter & THAT made all the difference! I got a sweet, soft cookie with plenty of whole grains in it & because of natural sweetness of the banana. Next time I might try adding a few mini choc chips. Thanks so much!
