Peanut Butter Cookies
These cookies are made with oat flour, spelt flour, peanut butter and maple syrup and free of refined oils and sugars. They are a bit more like cakey cookies. Delicious when they are warmed up and dipped in some hot almond milk or tea.
Recipe (makes 12-14 cookies) Prep time: 30 minutes
1 cup oatmeal, grind into flour
1 cup spelt flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup dairy free milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 medjool dates, chopped
2 squares of chocolate, sliced into cubes
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
Combine oatmeal flour, spelt flour and baking soda in a bowl.
In another bowl, mix the peanut butter, maple syrup, milk and vanilla extract.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients until a dough is formed.
Fold in the chopped medjool dates.
Divide the dough into 12-14 cookies and flatten them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Press a little square of chocolate on top.
Bake for 12 minutes and let them cool down for 5 minutes before eating.
