  • Cook Time: 1 hour
  • Persons: 4

  • 2 cups (450 g) natural peanut butter, salted -should only contain peanuts and salt (Saveur’s recipe uses Jif, but even Jif’s Natural PB contains lots of other ingredients which are unnecessary)

  • 2 tsp. molasses (treacle)
  • 2 tsp. olive oil

  1. Instructions
  2. Arrange racks in upper and lower thirds of oven and prepare two baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper and set aside. In a large mixing bowl cream together the peanut butter and sugars,molasses (treacle), and oil. Next, add the eggs, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon until well combined.
  3. Place demerara sugar in a bowl (I do a little at a time), and after forming the dough into 2″ balls, dip one side into the sugar and place on prepared baking sheet, sugar side up. Flatten the cookies using your hand, or with a fork.
  4. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, then allow to sit on cookie sheet for a few minutes before placing them on a cookie rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container.
