Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

I found this recipe in the Grilling 2010 issue of Penzey's Spices catalog. I have always loved peanut butter cookies and this is a very easy version. It is flourless and butterless. These cookies are moist, slightly chewy, and full of peanut butter flavor. Plus they have the yummy addition of chocolate chips.

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter (I used crunchy)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp wheat germ
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix by hand. Spoon out in rounded tablespoon-sized balls onto a greased cookie sheet. Press down with a fork. Bake for about 10 minutes.

Yield: about 18

Was going to try these today but no wheat germ! May just make your chocolate chip recipe you posted a couple years ago! The guys love it.
See how the garage cleaning goes.

I think they would be fine without the wheat germ, but you can't go wrong with just the basic chocolate chip cookie! Good luck with the garage cleaning. Our big project of the day is carpet shampooing.

Hey Vickie! Just wanted to let you know that we tried (in the past week) the pepperoni-stuffed chicken, smoked salmon salad and chicken quesadillas. My husband gives them two thumbs up!
