I can cross off a recipe from my Food Bucket List!!
I made Peanut Butter Cookies the other day. I was going to use the basic 3-ingredient recipe (Sugar, Peanut Butter and Egg) but I decided that was far to much sugar for human consumption, and I adapted it.
100g white sugar
100g crunchy peanut butter
50g flax seed (or flax seed mix)
50g rolled oats
Mix all ingredients, apart from the egg, together, until well combined.
Add the egg and mix again.
Using a teaspoon, measure out small balls of dough and shape them into small patties.
Bake in the oven at Gas mark 6 for around 20 minutes, or until golden brown (browner than they were to start with)
This mix makes about 30 cookies
Well, my family and I ate them far to quick to be photographed, so I apologise for that 😛 They were yummy. Just the perfect amount of sweetness, and so peanutty!! I would always add the oats and flax seed, as it makes me feel a little healthier nomming on these 🙂 and it adds more texture. The original recipe called for 200g sugar!! So too much!!
Next time I make them (which I will be doing again) I will endeavour to take a photo.
Try them if you love peanut butter 🙂
