Oishii: Almost Healthy Cookies

These are my go-to cookies.  The ones my husband is always requesting.  The ones I wrap up to give to friends as a thank you. The ones I let my daughter eat because they are almost healthy. 

Almost Healthy Cookies
3/4 cup butter (preferably organic from grass-fed cows or made from raw milk!)
1/2 cup organic peanut butter
3/4 cup natural cane sugar (rapadura)
1/2 cup organic brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/4 cup non-bleached all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl beat together butter and peanut butter.  Add sugars and baking powder and soda, beating til combined well.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  Beat in flours until combined, then gently mix in oats, chocolate chips and almonds.
Drop dough by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake for ~10 minutes.  Transfer to wire reack to cool.  Yields ~60 cookies.

Mmmm.  Let me know what you think.

Mmmmm, sounds delish. We're in need of a new almost-healthy cookie. Our old one got the boot for being... I think a little too healthy. I'll be letting you know if this can become a Super Gluten-Free Cookie Hero!
