  • 1/3 of a cup 60g Whole Cane Sugar (or 1/2 of a cup Granulated Sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Chia Egg See notes on how to prepare using chia seeds
  • 3/4 of a teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2/3 of a cup 100g Whole Wheat Flour (or equal amount of all-purpose flour)
  • 1 tablespoon Granulated Sugar optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 355°F (180°C) and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream together peanut butter, sugar and vanilla extract together in a medium sized bowl.
  3. Add chia egg, salt, baking powder to bowl. Sift whole wheat flour and add to bowl as well. Stir all ingredients together with a wooden spoon.
  4. Roll cookie dough into 1 1/2" (3.8cm) balls. Roll balls in granulated sugar (optional). Place balls on cookie sheet and flatten cookies with a fork to make a crisscross pattern.
  5. Bake in the oven for 12 -15 minutes until lightly browned.

Recipe Notes

1.) It is easy to make chia eggs. Simple add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds to a small bowl and cover with 3 tablespoons of water. Let this mixture sit for at least 15 minutes or even overnight if you prefer until a gel forms (This is your chia egg!). If you are doubling this recipe be sure to keep the 1:3 chia to water ratio when making chia eggs.2.) If you aren't used to baking with whole grains then you might find these cookies heavy at first. You can always use all-purpose flour instead of the whole grain if needed or slowly transition by using half whole wheat and half all-purpose. If you are used to making whole grain cookies then you'll love these ;)
