If you like peanut butter, and let's be honest, who doesn't, then you are going to love these!
I have been wanting to make a good cookie recipe for awhile, but mine would also turn out too dry and crumbly because I would use coconut flour.
These however, turned out so good and are the best dessert. The best part is, you can eat the raw cookie dough since it does not include eggs!
They are even better served warm, so I would recommend heating them up in the microwave for about 10 seconds since you won't be able to eat all of them fresh out of the oven! Dunk them into some almond or oat milk and wow -- I think we are onto something!
Ingredients you will need:
3/4 cup oat flour
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp maple syrup
4 tbsp filtered water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 flax egg (1 tbsp flaxseed + 3 tbsp water)
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Place oven to 400 F.
2. In a bowl, place the oat flour, almond meal, baking soda, baking powder, salt & mix together.
3. Make the flax egg by placing 1 tbsp flaxseed & 3 tbsp water in a small bowl, mix & let sit for 10-15 minutes until gel-like consistency.
4. In a separate bowl, mix the peanut butter, tahini, maple syrup, water, vanilla extract, cinnamon & flax egg until evenly combined. Once combined, place the chopped peanuts & chocolate in & mix together.
5. Add the peanut butter mixture to the flour bowl & stir until well combined.
6. Roll mixture into desired size balls, place onto a lined baking sheet & flatten with the back of a fork (I made mine pretty large to have 6 bigger cookies).
7. Place into the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Remove & let cool.
