I’m a huge fan of peanut butter– if I can add peanut butter to something, chances are that I do. I love to experiment with it, but I also love the classics: I’ve never grown out of the good old peanut butter sandwich. Adding cinnamon and raisins is one of the ways I like to make my peanut butter fancy, though, and why should sandwiches have all the fun?

Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter Cookies

Yield: 20-24 cookies

Ingredients

  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¾ cup flour of choice (I used white whole wheat)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup raisins

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and grease cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter and maple syrup until smooth.
  3. Add the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt and stir until just combined. Fold in the raisins.
  4. Place spoonfuls onto the cookie sheets and flatten.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes, cool on the sheet for another 3-5, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  3. I’ve never grown out of the peanut butter sandwich either. In fact, it’s my go-to breakfast when I’m busy. I wonder if I could just have these yummy cookies for breakfast. So glad you shared with us at Merry Monday. I like the raisins in mine too.
