Low-Fat Peanut Butter Cookies
From Cook's Country
Most cookies get their fat and calories from sugar, eggs, and a whole lot of butter. Peanut butter cookie recipes go a step further by adding at least a cup of the fatty main ingredient to the mix. We wanted a Low-Fat Peanut Butter Cookies recipe that lost the fat and kept the peanut flavor. To do this, we used melted butter, which the dough absorbs more easily, allowing us to cut back the amount needed in our recipe. Ground peanut butter cereal also added so much peanut flavor to our Low-Fat Peanut Butter Cookies recipe that we could cut back on the amount of peanut butter—and thus on the fat. Traditional peanut butter cookies have 200 calories, 12 grams of fat, and 4.5 grams of saturated fat per cookie. Our Low-Fat Peanut Butter Cookies have 130 calories, 4 grams of fat, and 2.5 grams of saturated fat per cookie.
