Peanut Butter Cookies

For me, dinner is rarely over without having some kind of treat afterward. Often a dollop of whipped cream or a glass of lime-infused sparkling water will do it for me, but sometimes I need to be even more prepared (especially when my sweet tooth is raging.) Recently I was on the hunt for some sort of guiltless dessert to have on-hand, and I stumbled upon this No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe by lovehealthfitness (one of the many bloggers I reference for foodie inspiration.)

The original recipe didn't call for as much water, and also didn't use regular peanut butter (she instead used powdered peanut butter.) I found that using a little more water helped me to achieve more of a dough-like consistency. And naturally, I had to add a little more sugar on top (because Coconut Sugar is SO good! Don't even get me started. ) Here is my tweaked version of the recipe.

No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Oat Flour
  • 1/4 cup Organic Coconut Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Organic Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup water

Method

Combine the first three ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Then, mix in the water until the dough is formed. Freeze the dough for 15 minutes (in order to decrease the stickiness of the dough). After freezing the dough, roll small balls of dough with your hands and place them on a piece of parchment paper (the balls should be about 1 - 1.25 inches in size.) Flatten the balls of dough using a fork in an criss-cross fashion. Lastly, sprinkle the cookies with a little additional Coconut Sugar, and enjoy! 

I think this recipe is deliciously satiating, is great for freezing, and is made with only 4 ingredients! What's not to love?
