Are you ready for a “healthier” take on the ever so loved and oh so classical peanut butter cookies? Well my friends, you’ve come to the right place! Today I will be sharing one of my secret homemade recipes which will HOPEFULLY have you going as nutty as I do when I indulge in such treats.
One of my favourite things about this recipe is that it’s sugar free which is always a winner in my books and can make a fabulous snack not only for yourself, but for the kids too! Alright, shall we get started?
INGREDIENTS: (enough to make about 12 cookies)
- 1 happy chicken egg
- 58g raw rolled oats
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 4 tbsp agave nectar
- 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- 4 tbsp peanut butter
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips
WHAT TO DO:
Combine all dry ingredients and mix together.
Next, add your happy chicken egg and agave nectar and mix together until combined.
I hope you have your arms prepared for the next bit because it requires some voluntary elbow grease. Yip, I bet you never thought that peanut butter cookies would cause some arm cardio! Add the peanut butter & chocolate chips and fold into the rest of the mixture until all is combined. Just a little FYI – this took me a while, but I found that a fork worked better than a spoon.
Time to give your arms a break and set the mixture in the fridge to chill for 30 min.
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius about 15 minutes before taking your mixture out of the fridge and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Scoop a cherry tomato sized amount of cookie dough out of your bowl, roll into a ball, and press down with a fork or spoon on the tray. Repeat this until your mixture is finished and pop in the oven to be baked for 12 minutes. The mixture will change to a golden brown colour when ready. Place your golden brown cookies on a rack to cool. Leave the biscuits in for a few extra minutes if you are wanting a good crunch.
TOP SECRET: While your cookies are cooling down, stick a few chocolate chips on the tops for decoration.
Serve and enjoy with a cup of tea! YUMMMMMY!!
Until next time
