Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
- Creamy Peanut Butter -1 cup
- 1 cup of butter (unsalted and softened)
- Granulated Sugar – 1 cup white sugar
- Light Brown Sugar – 1 cup packed light brown sugar (or golden brown sugar)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup PBfit Pumpkin Spice
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
Sprinkle the criss-cross cookies with sugar and spice (optional)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon or pumpkin spice
Additionally; you can just sprinkle the cookies with just the sugar. Or omit the sugar sprinkled on top altogether. I used ground cinnamon and sugar for our peanut butter cookies. If this isn’t the recipe for cookies you need right now I have several at the bottom of the post you can pick from.
You can pick up the PBfit Peanut Butter Powder in regular and pumpkin spice. It’s available on Amazon and other retailers, as well as Better Body Foods (Find out more after recipe).
Preheat oven to 375 F degrees
Get out your baking supplies. Mixing bowls, a mixing spoon, measuring cups, measuring spoons, baking sheets, and Silpats. If you don’t own Silpats yet you can use parchment paper on the baking sheets.
- In a large bowl – cream the softened butter, peanut butter, and sugars in a bowl.
- Add the eggs and mix it together until blended.
- In a separate bowl- add the flour, PBfit, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Incorporate slowly with a whisk.
- Next, add the flour mixture to the creamed ingredients. Do this until all the flour is combined together with the wet ingredients.
- Scoop the dough onto prepared baking sheets (or sheet pans with a Silpat).
- Take a fork and make a crisscross pattern on the cookies. Do this by slightly pressing on the cookies with a fork.
- Sprinkle with a sugar mixture or sugar.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes. Or until the cookies are just starting to brown.
- Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet before lifting or moving them! (This is important or they will crumble and need to cool a bit to set up. It’s worth it!). Use a spatula like this when moving them.
Enjoy the peanut butter cookies when cooled with milk, tea, or coffee. Pack them up and take these cookies on a hike for that extra protein boost. Or eat after a workout as a sweet treat.

What is PBfit Peanut Butter?
PBfit is a natural peanut butter powder with 87% less fat and about 1/3 the calories of traditional peanut butter. PBfit is a powder that makes it easier to use in smoothies, baking, and shakes of all kinds!
It has 7 grams of protein per tablespoon.
I can’t wait to try it in a smoothie or other recipe. I really think it added the perfect texture and made the best peanut butter cookies! Just remember to let them sit in the pan to cool a bit before moving them to a rack!
