Greetings and welcome in!

I am quite excited to share this recipe. It’s been a labor of love (for peanut butter mostly), but methinks I discovered just the right mix of ingredients.

Peanut Butter “Power”

Nearly everyone loves peanut butter especially the Krema/Crazy Richard’s brand which received an A- rating from Fooducate.

These cookies will be the hit of ANY occasion.

“Power” cookies because of the daily value of fiber and protein found in the peanut butter and Bob’s Red Mill’s wheat germ and flaxseed meal. And, because the cookies are baked on a Lodge Cast Iron griddle – what a tasty and healthy combo!
