  • 1 cup brown sugar or white sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil or vegetable oil (olive oil has too strong a flavor)
  • 1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons milk or water
  • 1 egg
  • 1-3/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 375° F.
  • In medium bowl, mix brown sugar, oil, peanut butter, salt, vanilla, milk, and egg. Add flour and baking powder and mix well.
  • Make 1” to 1-1/4” balls and place on greased cookie sheet (if you don’t have a cookie sheet, use a double sheet of aluminum foil). Use fork in a crisscross pattern to flatten. Bake for 9 minutes at 375° Remove from cookie sheet to cool.


Note: If you first measure the brown sugar, then the oil, then the peanut butter, you won’t have stuff sticking in the measuring cup.
