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


  • 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 love this. Improvised a bit… added a scoop of protein powder and some oats… and they were quite good! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Eythana says

    Just made these and they’re amazzing!!! yes, it’s true. they’re extremely addicting 🙂 Thank you Katie!!

    • sarah says

      yes, you can! it will have a slightly different flavor than using raisins (in my opinion, a better flavor!) just make sure you use the sunmaid ones from the grocery store, or ones that are equally soft 🙂

  3. Nathalie says

    These are the easiest, most delicious pick-me-ups ever. What I love so much about this recipe is that you can improvise. What I often do is add a spoonful of cashew butter, a tiny bit of hot water and a dash of cinnamon, and then use the cookie dough as a spread on a slice of Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin toast. With a cup of coffee, it’s the greatest snack when I’m studying. I also enjoy using it as a dip for carrot sticks (I leave out the cinnamon and adda bit more salt when doing that). Like every recipe on this site, this one’s a keeper. Thanks Katie!

  5. Arielle says

    I love your recipes! They are unendingly (is that even a word?) creative, delicious, easy and healthy. I always reference your page when I’m looking for tasty treats that are guilt free. Thank you for being so well…..awesome! 🙂

  6. Wendy says

    This is an amazing recipe! I tweaked it some because I like a gooey cookie. I added a couple big scoops of date paste and some ground up oatmeal. Divine! This is going to help my sweet tooth get through the Daniel Fast. Thank you!

  7. Danielle says

    I’m doing the Clean cleanse, so I substituted almond butter for the peanut butter, raw cashews for the roasted peanuts, and added a bit more salt. Amazing! Thank you for the great recipe!

  8. Irma Gallegos says

    Hi Katie, I have a question about your PB cookie dough recipe. I’m confused with the 2nd ingredient. Is it another 1/4 cup of PB plus the raisins?

    thanks, and I love your blog!

  9. Katie B. says

    Haha, never complain about your commentary, Katie!! It’s one of the main reasons I love your blog so much!!! Your happy rambles cheer me up so often and make my day. =)

  10. marissa brueshaber says

    Im allergic to grapes so cant eat rasins. Have you ever made these with figs or dates instead?

  11. Madeleine says

    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 🙂

  12. Kai says

    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. 🙂



  13. Margaux says

    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.

  14. Kerri Todd says

    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.

  15. Mary Thomas says

    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?
