Powdered Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Powdered Peanut Butter Cookies

We love suggestions here at Honeyville! Whether it's clever, new ways to use our products, delicious, adventurous new recipes to try, or even bold, exciting products we should carry, we're always excited to hear what you, our fans, want to see!

Today's recipe is the perfect example of this. Earlier this week we got a phone call from one of our followers, looking for a particular recipe. She was in the process of creating some fun, exciting Cookie In a Jar recipes for her daughters Girl Scout Troop to sell at an upcoming bake sale. The Cookie in a Jar recipe she was trying to create was a Peanut Butter Cookie recipe, using our amazing Powdered Peanut Butter, but unfortunately, she wasn't having the best of luck, so she reached out to us to see if we had a basic Peanut Butter Cookie recipe using our Powdered Peanut Butter.

To her surprise, and also mine, in the 4 year history of our blog, and the many, many cookie recipes we've produced, we had never made a Peanut Butter cookie using our Powdered Peanut Butter. Crazy, right? You know I couldn't let a great opportunity like that pass by, especially when it involves cookies! So, by request from one of our great followers, we've created a delicious, super-easy-to-bake, peanut butter cookie recipe, that could be easily transfer into a Cookie in a Jar recipe, if you choose. 

1 1/2 cups Honeyville Powdered Peanut Butter + 1/4 cup Water
1/2 cup (1 stick) Butter
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Honeyville Powdered Whole Eggs + 3 Tbsp Water (1 egg)
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Reconstituted Peanut Butter Powder

In a large mixing bowl, reconstitute your peanut butter by adding powder and 1/4 cup water together, then mixing until you get thick peanut butter.

Cookie Dough

Add sugars, butter, and powdered whole eggs, and mix together with an electric mixer until completely creamed together.

Cookie Flour

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Add to wet mixture and mix until a soft dough forms.

Criss Cross Cookie Dough

On a greased baking pan, roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on sheet. Using a fork, flatten each ball, making a criss-cross pattern.

Baked Cookie

Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes, or until tops are lightly golden. Remove, and allow to cool 5 minutes before serving.

Peanut Butter Cookies

This is the tastiest, easiest basic peanut butter cookie recipe you could imagine! The cookies bake up in the perfect texture, just enough crispness and softness you're hoping for in a cookie. The rich taste and aroma of peanut butter runs through the entire cookie. Replace the regular butter with our Powdered Butter and you've got the perfect Cookie in a Jar recipe for any Holiday or bake sale.

Peanut butter is a favorite of mine. I wouldn't be able to keep from nibbling at these! They sound wonderful.

What about a peanut butter cookie with regular peanut butter plus powdered peanut butter to up the peanut flavor?

I tried this recipe today. Very disappointed. First, 1/4 cup water is no where near enough water to produce a peanut-butter-like consistency. I eventually added a total of 3/4 cups water,a tablespoon of vegetable oil, a real egg and they still came out dry! Not only that, they don't taste very peanut-buttery.
I think if I were to try this again, I would use a whole cup of water, add a couple of tablespoons of "real" peanut butter, and maybe some vanilla extract. Something to give it some flavor.

Tried to make a low carb version using xylitol for sweetener and protein powder instead of flour. Also added baking soda. They were ok. Sweet, but flat. Needs work. Back to the drawingboard. Love the powder in general!!!!! Yum in cottage cheese w a pack of stevia. My go to snack.
