I’ve been craving peanut butter cookies for the past couple of weeks, so last night I finally decided to give in to my craving, but to put a healthier spin on the traditional cookies.
175g peanut butter
1 Tbs flaxmeal
3 Tbs water
3-4 Tbs wholemeal self raising flower
1 Tbs Natvia (or any sweetener you prefer)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla bean paste or essence
Mix the flaxmeal and water, then add all the other ingredients and stir to combine. Scoop teaspoons of mixture into balls and place on a lined baking tray. Push a fork down on the top of each ball to flatten into a cookie shape. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees celcius for 10-15 minutes. Cool on the tray for a few minutes and then move to a wire rack for further cooling.
