So prior to my trip to Greece last week, I made a large order (mainly quest bars) from Clean Snax
) & whipped up a batch of these Peanut butter cookies (a recipe from Madeline Shaw
Since adjusting my diet over the past year
, I’ve come to the stage now where plane food and ready meals just don’t appeal to me. All i have to do is think about how I will feel after eating it and it’s enough to put me, personally, off.
Holiday does mean treating yourself though, so these cookies were the perfect solution so to me not missing out.
The coconut oil and sugar completely satisfies my sugar cravings (quite rich so you don’t need as much either) and I think they’d also be YUM sprinkled over muesli / greek yog.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
250g Ground Almonds
1 tsp Baking Powder
100g peanut butter (I used Whole Earth)
100g coconut oil (or butter)
125g coconut sugar (or honey/maple syrup)
+ A sprinkle of sesame seeds to go on top.
HOW TO MAKE THE COOKIES:
1. Preheat the oven to 170deg.
2. In a blender, blend the coconut oil, peanut butter and coconut sugar.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder and almonds.
4. Fold the wet mixture into the dry and create a mouldable consistency.
I found mine was a little wet so added some extra ground almonds.
5. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and space out even sized cookie rounds.
(This wasn’t actually enough space, the cookies expanded LOADS and kinda merged together… haha. So a little more spacious for yours.)
6. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes.
(I got distracted and left them for an extra couple of minutes which was clearly crucial to their perfection as i slightly burnt them…)
12 MINUTES ONLY!
Still tasted AMAZING none the less! 🙂
Super simple, crowd pleasing & you don’t have to feel guilty.
I know this is the first of many batches i’ll be whipping up!
Thank you for reading, lots of love…
