Peanut Butter WOW Cookies

These are for all you peanut butter lovin' people. But, for those of us who have a nut allergy we can still enjoy these cookies by changing up the peanut butter with WOW BUTTER which is a toasted soy spread. It really does bake up exactly the same as when using the real thing, and they taste like the real thing too.
Yields 3 dozen cookies.
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter OR 1 cup WOW butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cup white flour
  1. Cream together first 5 ingredients until well blended.
  2. Add baking soda, baking powder and vanilla. Beat well.
  3. Add flour and mix just until incorporated.
  4. Roll dough into 1 1/2" balls and place onto baking sheets. Flatten with a fork in a criss cross pattern.
  5. Bake in 350ยบ oven for 8-10 minutes.
  6. Allow to sit on pans for 1 minute and then remove to cooling rack. (these freeze well)


  1. I had to look up Wow butter, do these actually taste like peanut butter cookies? I'm sure I can find Wow in Ontario to try the recipe.

    1. Yes Judith.....they really do. To my taste and others I've asked to do a taste test there is little to no difference. Let me know what you think.

  2. I'm going to make these with my 7 year old grandaughter. They look wonderful! Do I need to grease the cookie sheet? Thank you.

  3. Oh boy - now I am so hungry for a peanut butter cookie!!! That Wow butter is amazing.
