Easy Peanut Butter Graham Cookies

When I made these cookies, I thought I would experiment a bit and add in graham cracker crumbs. Most of my "experiments" don't turn out that well, but I was happy to find out that these were delicious! They are not all that different, but they have a subtle graham flavor and a great texture. They are a little more crumbly but still chewy at the same time. I even made Nick do a side by side comparison of the original and these, and these won! 
  • 1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter (I used Jif creamy)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt (optional)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl, stir together peanut butter and sugars until well combined.  Add egg, salt, and baking soda and stir until completely incorporated.  
  4. Roll into tablespoon-sized balls and create a cris-cross pattern with a fork. 
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned.  
  6. Slide parchment paper off baking sheet and let cool for at least 10 minutes, and enjoy!

  1. Oooh, I absolutely love peanut butter cookies, but have never even thought to add in graham cracker crumbs. But that might be the best idea I've heard in a long time!
