A recipe and video for Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies made with just 3 simple ingredients and in only 1 bowl! These cookies are ready to eat in under 20 minutes. Healthy snacking doesn’t get easier than this!
I have an idea for a new episode of MTV’s True Life series. True Life: I’m addicted to peanut butter. Starring Davida from The Healthy Maven and Lee from Fit Foodie Finds.
I have no doubts that our very real problem with peanut butter could cover an entire hours worth of reality TV binging. In fact, I’m somewhat surprised they’ve yet to come calling. I’ve only tweeted at them 15 times…
But actually, Lee and I take peanut butter consumption to the next level. We CRUSHED 3 containers of bulk barn organic peanut butter in 5 days. I’ve never been more grateful that the cashier at bulk barn assumes I buy the cheap, regular, sugar-filled PB rather than the more expensive, natural, organic variety that I actually buy. I’m aware it makes me a bad person for never correcting her…I blame the peanut butter.
And of course because the Fit Foodie was around, I insisted that she make an appearance in my latest YouTube video. Some might say I forced her into it through peanut butter bribery. Those people would be correct.
Did I mention peanut butter?
So as the powerhouse trifecta that is Healthnut Foodie Maven, we combined forces for the greatest cookies to hit YouTube since chocolate chip stuffed oreos. But more like the dumbed down, healthy version of those.
Watch the video –> stock up on peanut butter –>make these cookies –>attempt self-control.
Feel free to attempt in the order of your pleasing. In the meantime, you’ll find me filming for the latest episode of True Life.
