Peanut Butter Cookies

Ok, so.  These cookies are good, but not super sweet.  My husband and kids really like them, but we haven’t had a sugar-filled cookie in almost a year.  I’m pretty sure that our taste has changed, and thankfully, things that aren’t very sweet taste amazing.  That being said, if you are looking for a treat full of good, healthy stuff, this is a great option.  They are SUPER easy to make, and you could easily spice them up with various ingredients.  Chocolate, more syrup, etc.  I feel like I keep saying this, but for me, treats I feel good about giving my kids are the best.  Hope you enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (make sure the only ingredients are peanuts and salt…)
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal (ground flax)
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour (ground oats)
METHOD:
1.  Mix syrup, peanut butter, and milk until combined.
2.  Add flaxseed meal and mix.  Allow to sit for a couple of minutes.
3.  Stir in oat flour.
4.  Roll into balls, and press with a fork to flatten.
5.  Bake on parchment lined cookie sheet in 350 oven for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.  Makes 10-14 cookies depending on size.

 

*Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
