31 for 21: Easy & Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Last night I made some cookies - a jar of peanut butter (a whole jar?? listen, it's a big recipe), some honey, and a few eggs. Add some cocoa for a nice rich flavor. Simple but good. Mix up the dough, let it chill out while you go milk the goats, then come in to bake cookies.

These ones really get up on their hind legs and scream for a cold glass of (goat) milk :).

Easy and Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies (Grain-free, Refined Sugar-free)
Hanunyah Creation

1-16oz jar natural peanut butter (chunky or smooth)*
1 cup honey
3 eggs
1 cup cocoa

1. Mix all ingredients together. Mix well. If the dough is too thin to handle, set in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Drop the dough onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 6 to 8 minutes.

Makes about 40 cookies, depending on size.

*A 16oz jar peanut butter = 3 cups peanut butter.
For a marble effect, follow directions except do not add the cocoa powder initially. Divide the dough into two bowls, and add the cocoa to one. After chilling, gently fold the doughs together. Proceed with directions.

new design + name

As of 1-3-12: I've re-named my blog name (which used to be "Hanunyah's Sweet Creations") to "Ranch Girl's Sweets 'N' Treats". "Sweet Creations" is a pretty common name, so I figured I'd change it to something a little different ;). My URL is still the same, though.

Also, a big thanks goes to my older sister (@ who has re-designed my blog and fixed-up all of the HTML. So, I hope you enjoy the new layout!
