Peanut Butter Cookies with Multigrain Flour

These homemade cookies are made with peanut butter and multigrain flour .       As lots of peanut butter is used in this recipe, there is no need to add any oil/fat nor any other butter/margarine. I have used honey as natural sweetening agent to the cookies which is, a little healthier than the white sugar!     I have used low sodium creamy type peanut butter to this recipe. You can also use crunchy or any other type nut butters available in market.I have used Multigrain flour (combination of wheat, oats, soya, maize and psyllium husk flour) bought from a Indian store.     This recipe makes up to 24 cookies. I have made twelve plain cookies and other twelve with chocolate chips because i love chocolate chips .
