Ingredients

    1 cups whole wheat flour
    .75 cup of all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup reduced-fat peanut butter (I used Whole Foods)
    1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
    1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
    1/4 cup fat-free milk
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
    1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts or cashews

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium-size bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat peanut butter and butter on medium speed 2 minutes, until creamy.

Add brown sugar and 1/4 cup of the granulated, and beat 2 minutes. Beat in milk, egg and vanilla.

Beat in dry ingredients until just combined. Stir in chips and nuts. Chill dough 15 minutes.

For each cookie, roll 2 teaspoons of dough into a ball and place on baking sheets 2 inches apart. With fork, flatten each ball into a 1 1/2-inch round, making a crosshatch pattern. (I found dipping the fork in between each crosshatch in the extra sugar instead of sprinkling it on, was easier and less use of sugar) Or you Sprinkle a small amount of the remaining sugar over the top of each.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned around edges. Let cool on sheets 1 minute. Transfer to rack; let cool.

Note: This is a sticky dough and you have to make small cookies, about half the size of a golf ball.
