Peanut Butter Oat chocolate chip cookies

 

Peanut butter, if organic and sugar free can be a great addition to any healthy balanced diet. High in protein and potassium peanut butter can be great post workout snack. They also contain healthy fats and vitamin E making it a food good for glowing skin and healthy hair. If you can eat nuts this is a great treat recipe and the dark chocolate is a great source of antioxidant boost.

 

Ingredients

1 cup 100% pure peanut butter crunchy or smooth

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup rolled oats gluten free if desired

1/3 Natvia

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 dark chocolate chips

 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 180 C and line a large baking tray (or two smaller trays) with baking paper.

Combine the oats, Natvia, cinnamon, bicarb and salt in a large mixing bowl. Set aside. In a separate small bowl, whisk the eggs together.

In a small saucepan, gently warm the peanut butter over the stove top to soften it, just a little (if you're in a warm climate / your peanut butter is very soft, this is not necessary). Stir in the vanilla. Make sure not to get the peanut butter too hot; it's just so it's easier to mix.

Add the peanut butter-vanilla mixture to the oat mixture and start working them together. Pour in the whisked eggs as you are mixing. Finally, add in the chocolate chips and bring it all together, it should form a slightly sticky dough.
