Peanut butter Cookies (1 bowl)

Peanut butter Cookies (1 bowl)

Peanut butter or any nut butter for that matter is life for me. Peanut butter is the main ingredient in this simple 1 bowl cookie recipe and is a great way to add healthy fat to the mix. This cookie makes the perfect handy snack or accompaniment for a nice cuppa. They’re slightly crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy in the centre.

Peanut butter being the main ingredient here adds some good fats, protein and a load of flavour! There’s a whole 7g of protein per cookie which was totally accidental but totally cool with me. The flour I chose is oat flour which is easily accessible for most people. ( Just grab regular oats and blend into flour! ) AND this flour makes the recipe gluten free for those who are gluten intolerant/sensitive. Just opt for a gluten free oat blend.

My favourite thing about this recipe besides the eating part, is the fact that this is such a simple recipe & method. All you need is 6 ingredients and 1 bowl.
