Peanut Butter Cookies remind me of my childhood. I have fond memories of coming home after school and seeing (and smelling) freshly baked peanut butter cookies spread out on the counter, on top of brown paper grocery bags. I thought I’d revisit the recipe this month. I promise, they’ll leave your kid’s tummies satisfied – the ultimate and super tasty after-school snack! For me, Peanut Butter is like a super food. It’s full of nutritional goodness, including a great source of protein.
Is it just me, but I’m JUST starting to feel like I’m getting into the swing of things for the new school year. Getting the kids up and ready for school early in the mornings and making sure my youngest is on time for the bus can be exhausting by itself. My kiddos come home from school tired and “starving.” Peanut Butter Cookies are the perfect pick-me-up snack to have ready for them.
Sidenote: My oldest is in his first year of University. When I bought snacks for him and his best friend Keri, who is a 2nd year student at the same University, all she wanted was a jar of Kraft Peanut Butter and a Spoon!
Peanut Butter Cookies are also a great snack to have around when your house is full of guests – which is something that happens at our house all the time. They’re easy to make and a huge favourite in our home.
DYK: 79% of Canadian households enjoy peanut butter at least once a week, according to Erickson Research from the Peanut Bureau of Canada.
