Raw Peanut + Oat Cookies
Something to satisfy the sweet tooth in all of us – Raw Peanut + Oat Cookies.
These cookies are packed full of protein from the peanuts and chia seeds, and loaded with fibre from the oats.
They can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy 🙂
Ingredients (makes about 12 cookies)
1 cup natural peanut butter (no added sugar or oils, preferably raw)
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
Warm the peanut butter and maple syrup in a large saucepan. When liquid, add the oats and chia seeds and mix well. Allow to cool slightly then shape spoonfuls of mixture into 12 cookies around 1cm thick. Place each cookie onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and allow to cool and set in the fridge for at least an hour before serving
NOTE: these cookies can also be baked in a 180 degree Celsius oven for 10-12 minutes. Baking results in a crunchier, slightly drier cookie.
