Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla optional
  • 1 egg or 1 flax egg - 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water
  • 1-1/4 cup Quick oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Instructions

  • Combine the honey, peanut butter, Vanilla, and Egg.
  • Stir in the Oatmeal, and baking powder and mix until a dough is formed
  • scoop out a small dough roll it into a ball and flatten it out.
  • Bake for at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes
  • I feel these are best when freshly baked but my family thinks the next day cookies are best. Let me know what you think. :)

Notes

 

  • Don't over mix your dough! Otherwise, it will result in a tough dough.
  • Take the Egg and the peanut butter out of the fridge about 10 to 20 minutes before you start making your cookies. They combine easily when they are at room temperature.
  • I prefer to use parchment paper instead of spraying my pan. If you don't have parchment paper just bake it directing on your baking tray. It will still come off easily, you might just have a little more cleaning to do.
  • These are soft and chewy cookies so it's advisable to bake for just 10 minutes. It's okay if it doesn't look done at this time, it will continue to cook for a few minutes after they are out from the oven. However, if you want your cookies a bit crunchy (crispier texture), feel free to add a couple of minutes to the baking time.
  • Leave the cookies to cool completely before eating.
