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.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup sifted whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup dry milk powder
- 1/2 cup wheat bran
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and peanut butter until smooth. Mix in the honey, egg and vanilla. Combine the whole wheat flour, dry milk powder, wheat bran and baking soda; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges begin to brown. Remove from baking sheet to cool on wire racks.
