Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Peanut Butter Cookies (an oldie but a goody)

I think these have to be one of the easiest cookies in the world to make. You only need 4 ingredients, and you don't even need a mixer! Kids like to help with these cookies because they can make the famous criss-cross marks on the tops.

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients with a spoon in a medium-sized bowl until well blended. Roll teaspoon-sized balls from the mixture and place them on a baking sheet sprayed with no-stick cooking spray. Make criss-cross marks across the tops of the cookies with a fork. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. 
IMPORTANT: let cool 15 minutes before you take them off the baking sheet or else they will fall apart!
Makes 20-24 cookies (depending on how big or small you like them).

Enjoy with a nice cold glass of milk!

  1. If I lived even 2hours away from you and your kitchen...I would be as B~I~G as a house!

  2. Ha ha! It's all in moderation. At least that's what I keep telling myself, anyway. These are NOT low-cal or low-fat, but I DO try and make most of meals as healthy as possible. It IS nice to have a yummy treat every now and though, right!? =)

  3. Made these this past weekend. They were a BIG hit.

  4. My sis made these and LOVED them. Yum!
