Salted peanut butter oat cookies
Peanut butter choc chip anything is pretty hard to beat, but all wrapped up in creamy cookie dough, with the chocolate chips baked until soft and gooey takes it to a whole new level of deliciousness that I think you should try REALLY SOON. Enjoy!
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup peanut butter, crunchy
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
- 1 egg or 1 Tbs chia seeds soaked in 3 Tbs water for 5 min
- 1 tsp vanilla paste or extract
- 3/4 cup gluten-free oat flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips or salted peanuts, roughly chopped
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a baking tray.
Add the butter, peanut butter, sugar, egg or soaked chia seeds and vanilla to a mixing bowl and mix until well combined. Add the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate chips, and mix again until smooth, then stir in the chocolate chips.
Roll into balls (using 1 large tsp of the mixture per ball) and press down gently onto each one with a fork.
Arrange on the prepared tray and bake for ±10 minutes, or until lightly golden and smelling delicious.
You could even spread over some extra peanut butter before sprinkling with chopped peanuts, if using.
