¾ cup all-purpose flour

⅓ cup whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided

½ teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon ground allspice and salt

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar (not packed)

1/3 cup light peanut butter

3 tablespoons butter, softened

2 tablespoons molasses

1 1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together both flours, baking soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, ginger, allspice and salt. Set aside. Combine granulated sugar and remaining 1 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.

3. In another medium bowl, beat together brown sugar, peanut butter and butter on medium speed of electric mixer for about 1 minute. Add molasses, egg and vanilla. Beat again until smooth.

4. Using a wooden spoon, stir flour mixture into peanut butter mixture. You will be making a stiff dough. Using your hands, shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll balls in reserved cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart (they spread a lot when baking). Flatten cookies slightly using a fork.

5. Bake cookies for 7 minutes. They may appear undercooked, but that’s okay. Remove cookies from oven and immediately transfer from pan to a wire rack to cool.
