This is my new favourite recipe.
Made with WowButter, it is peanut free and it tastes JUST like the real deal.
It is also super easy because it only has three ingredients!
Wow Butter Cookies

Combine ingredients and mix until smooth.
Spoon into balls, place on ungreased cookie sheet and make a crisscross pattern with a fork.
Bake for 6-8 minutes.
Let them cool then enjoy!
Makes at least a dozen.
Using a tablespoon measuring soon, I have made 20 cookies.
It depends on how big you make your cookies
About three years ago, I developed a peanut allergy.
My favourite cookie in the world was peanut butter cookies.
A while back, I came across WowButter.
It is a peanut and tree nut free soy based peanut butter alternative. My middle kiddo was so upset that she could no longer enjoy peanut butter at home. To our surprise, this tastes just like peanut butter.
The down side for me is that it is soy based and has palm oil.
I try to stay away from soy as it has been said that soy can be an endocrine disrupter. Palm oil … the manufacturer of WowButter claims that their palm oil is sourced sustainably from a supplier that is part of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil.
Why is palm oil bad?
In some places, the cultivation of palm oil leads to deforestation. There have been reports of mass animal slaughtering as they flee the forests.
Palm oil trees produce more oil than traditional oil crops and require less land.
Back to the cookies . . .
The first time I made these simple three ingredient WowButter cookies, I almost cried. Happy tears. I thought I would never get to enjoy the deliciousness that is peanut butter cookies.
I am tempted to try WowButter cups.
I miss my peanut butter cups but I am intimidated by melting chocolate. I once cooked it too long and ruined fudge.
