Pecan and oatmeal cookies

Pecan and oatmeal cookies

Sometimes a gal ( or guy of course ) just needs a cookie – a pecan and oatmeal cookie in this case! These were so damn easy to whip together its ridiculous. They are a bit more nutritious than a regular store-bought cookie so it makes it much more satisfying to eat when you know you’re doing nice things for your body. I dipped them in chocolate to enhance the luxury of the cookie and my god, was that a great idea.

SIMPLE, CHUNKY, SUBTLY SWEET, NUTTY, HEART-WARMING.

Grab your mixing bowl and let’s get going!

Equipment

  • Mixing bowl
  • mixing spoon
  • Baking tray
  • blender/nutribullet

Ingredients
  

  • 50 g oats (use GF oat for gluten free cookies)
  • 50 g oat flour blended oats
  • 25 g Chopped pecans
  • 30 g dark chocolate for melting at the end of recipe
  • 2 eggs
  • 50 g brown sugar/coconut sugar can substitute with 2 bananas if you want
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 100 g peanut butter smooth is best/runny consistency

Instructions
 

  • Mix oat flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon and pecans in a mixing bowl
  • Add peanut butter and 2 eggs and mix thoroughly until combined
  • You should have a sticky dough. Ideally leave to set in the fridge for 15-30 minutes to get firm. This allows you to be easily able to handle and mould the dough
  • After firming, divide the mix into roughly 6 cookies. Mould and flatten the dough into cookie shapes on a baking tray ( line the tray with baking paper )
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees celcius for 15-20 minutes until slightly golden brown on the top
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool. When cool, melt the dark chocolate and dip half of the cookie into the chocolate. ( this step is optional. You could always opt to crush the chocolate at an earlier stage and mix into the cookie dough )
    Leave chocolate to set on cookies in the fridge and when it has hardened, they are ready to eat!
