I added cocoa… always add cocoa :).

Delicious.

Making the kids ginger snaps and made this at the same time to try to resist. It did resist the ginger snaps but ate 4 of these. Oops

Haha, love it, Karen!!

This recipe looks delish! Just curious why one cookie is 2 teaspoons instead of 3 teaspoons? (48 tsp in one cup: (24 tsp pb + 12 tsp honey) / 12 = 3)

Honey is not one of your oil teaspoons, Suzy. It’s a special teaspoon from page 15. You can have up to 4 teaspoons of sweetener daily.

can i replace the honey with agave syrup or maple syrup?

You can try it, Adriana! I’d probably do maple syrup over agave. It’s thicker.

Genius!

Amazing. I just made these. So delucious You are a true gift. Thank you.

Wow, thank you so much, Cindy! So sweet!

Hiii! Just ran into your amazing page. Curios question: how many cookies can I have without exceeding my containers?

Hey, Arleen! It depends on your personal calorie bracket. Each cookie = 2 teaspoons

did you store the leftovers in the fridge? These are the bomb btw! Much more satisfying then eating 2 tsp of pb off my teaspoon lol.

We’ve only had leftovers once and I just sent them in a Tupperware with hubby to work. I can’t be left alone with them, Melissa!

The honey is that pure honey or raw honey? Thanks

I use pure, raw local honey, but I’m sure any will do, Rachel.

what kind of pb do you use for the cookies?

I’ve used all sorts, Kristie! Jif Natural, All Natural (refrigerated), you name it.

Also if your calorie intake is 1200 to 1499 how many are you allowed

Kristie, each cookie = 2 teaspoons, so for the lowest bracket, you may have one cookie per day.

i don’t have honey, could syrup be used iin it’s place?

I haven’t tried it, but it sounds good in theory, Amanda, hehe.

I’m trying the cookies has she had listed above in a few minutes but I may try Putin in cocoa next time!

Mmm, how did they taste, Jen?

Can you use anything else besides honey

I haven’t tried, but I bet maple syrup would be yummy.

I wonder how these would work with 1/4 cup pb and 1/4 cup pumpkin puree. I love pb and pumpkin together. I may have to try it later.

Did you try it, Erica? I’m curious!

Could you use PB2 instead of actual peanut butter for this recipe?? I hope so, that’s all I have! 🙂

Hmm, I’m not sure, Alexus! I’ve never tried that.

I added a dash of cinnamom and a tsp of vanilla…DELICIOUS!!!!

Cinnamon*

After just 12 minutes of baking the bottoms were burnt. Will try again only at a lower temp and for less than 15 minutes.

I’m sorry to hear that! I hope your next batch is yummy.

I tried this recipe last night with agave honey and a tbsp of coconut oil. It’s delicious!

I didn’t see the “limit to one cookie a day” part until it was too late. I had 3 cookies in one sitting – – although I shaped them into bite size tsp cookies to be exact. Now I have to get that extra work out in!

Haha, Sharon! Hope you had a great workout! *flex*

These were so easy and so good! I wonder how they would bake with chunky pb. I think that crunch would make them that much better! Thanks for this recipe!

What if I don’t have parchment paper-I am dying for a sweet!!!

I used foil

Love this recipe!! I’ve included it in my latest blog post, 21 day fix recipe round up! Thanks so much for sharing! – Alesha Haley

Do you think almond or cashew butter will work? I am allergic to peanuts.

One word. “Amazing!” Thank you!

So sweet! Thanks, Adriana!

how much shakeology does this recipe call for?

They are delicious! Thanks for sharing. How do you store them. In a cookie jar? Ziplock Bag! In the refrigerator or out?

I store them in a sealed container on the counter or in the freezer. They’re great to break up into banana ice cream!! 😀

Just curious why is it only equal to 2 Tsp. I know you added an egg. Wouldn’t that be 1/2 red also?

One egg is 1/2 red. This is 1/2 red divided into 12 cookies, so not enough to count per serving. It would be 0.04 red per serving — don’t you dare track nitty gritty decimals like that! 🙂

Just made these. Used maple syrup instead of honey on a 1:1 ratio so I didn’t add anything extra (some websites state to add sugar when you replace honey with maple syrup- but it’s not needed). Added a dash of Saigon cinnamon and 1 tsp of vanilla. Baked for 7 minutes and then checked and it only needed one more minute. Since all ovens are diff, be on the safe side and check before hitting 15 min. Batter was yummy, cookies were amazing. Awesome!!! Thanks for the recipe.

Thanks so much, Bonnie! I’ve always wondered how they would be with maple syrup. Those sound AWESOME!

Can you use almond butter in stead of peanut butter?

I haven’t tried it yet, Jen, but I feel like others have. Wish I could answer! Proceed with caution, haha.

Hi Jean! I LOVE these cookies and we make them all the time! I included them in a post for thefoodieandthefix.com about healthy ways to curb a sweet tooth 🙂 Thanks for posting!

Aww, thanks for sharing! <3

So good!!! Thank you!

Yay, glad you like it!
