  • By law, peanut butter has to contain 90% peanuts and no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives are allowed.
  • Peanut butter usually contains stabilizers to keep the oil from separating.
  • Natural peanut butter, made from only peanuts and oil, must be stored in the refrigerator and stirred before use.
  • Either type will make delicious cookies.

"I have been researching and trying a number of recipes to make a healthy cookie similar to one that our Gym coffee shop sells for $3.50! This particular recipe was adapted so instead of bars I made thick round cookies and cooked them just underdone so they were soft and chewy. They were a hit with all the girls. Thanks for the great recipe."
