Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cookies




healthy peanut butter cookies

Very addictive.

So addictive you can’t eat just one.

So addictive you can’t eat just two.

So addictive they should come with a warning label.

Oh so very addictive.

Not for sharing.

Normally, I am very good about sharing my desserts with any friends who show up at my door. (And due to the fact that my friends know I make desserts for a living, inevitably someone will always show up at my door.) But as soon as I made these cookies, I knew I had something special on my hands. Therefore, I barred the door shut.

And contemplated building a moat around my house.

I’ve had way too much fun with the commentary on this post.

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cookies

Print This Recipe 5/5


  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp raisins
  • salt to taste (I used a little over 1/4 tsp, but I like salty pb cookies!)
  • 2 tbsp roasted, unsalted peanuts (If you can only find salted, reduce or omit added salt)
  • 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract


Throw everything into your food processor (I used an Osterizer) and combine until very smooth. Roll into balls, cookies, bars, or simply eat shovel the dough into your mouth, straight from the machine. Dough can be stored on the counter, in the fridge, or in the freezer.

Or in your belly.

These cookies taste like eating unbaked peanut butter cookie dough.

Mmmmmmm a giant ball of peanut butter cookie dough.

1/4 cup peanut butter, 1/8 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 cup… Full recipe: @choccoveredkt

Question of the Day: Hmmm I can’t think of one. I’m too busy dreaming about how addictive these peanut butter cookies are!

    I know this is one of your older posts, but I LOVE this cookie dough so much. It’s one of my favorite recipes on your blog. You’ve been an inspiration to me in many ways and I wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done on this blog 🙂

    These SMELL just like Butterfinger candy bars, and taste just like them…however, they are not crispity-crunchity. They lack chocolate, too. But good grief, are they peanut-buttery. Perhaps a little too much for me (I mean, considering the ingredients, you expect it, so it’s not a complaint, haha). Turned out beautifully, but it’s way too rich for me to eat more than one at a time. I’d like to try these in any way with banana, because I lo~ve PB and banana. 🙂

    Hi! These look delicious, but could you please add the measurements in grams? I’ve noticed you haven’t done it in the last recipes you posted (I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and already tried many recipes which were all yummy!), but some of us live in countries where cups don’t exist 🙂
    Also, do you think it is possible to use dattes instead of raisins?
    Thanks for your answer.

    More of a question then a comment and i apologise if this has been asked previously however…..
    As i am looking at keeping these as a food source to b carried in my BOB do you have a rough shelf life for them? If it helps i vacuum pack all foods for long storage.

    I am pregnant and trying to work dates into my diet (don’t like them alone)… do you think I could use dates instead of the raisins?
