Peanut Butter Cookies

Submitted by on June 18, 2010 – 12:56 pm2 Comments

This recipe is taken from Suma’s 1986 cookbook – good food never goes out of fashion!


125g (4oz) Wholemeal flour
2 tbsp  Suma Organic Peanut Butter crunchy variety (GH022, GH047, GH256, GH248)
1 tbsp Margarine       
2 tbsp Muscovado sugar
2 tbsp Suma Vine Fruit Mix (DR119, DR365)
1 Egg
½ tsp Suma Baking Powder (HE225)



Cream the margarine, peanut butter and sugar together and add the beaten egg. Gradually add the sifted dry ingredients and the fruit. Divide into 20 pieces, roll into balls and press onto a baking sheet.

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes in a medium oven.

The sugar and/or dried fruit in this recipe are optional – if you choose to use it the dried fruit will act as a sweetener by itself.

    I made these at the weekend with choclate chips instead of fruit, and used flax seeds instead of egg to make them vegan. They came out ok, but I also needed to add some water to the mix to make the dough more doughy. The recipe made about 7 cookies for me, so maybe double it if you want to make more!
