Lately I have not felt very creative in the kitchen. Cooking has been more of a ‘they gotta eat before activity’ than ‘let’s try this out, it looks fun to make’. Baking is on the back-burner anyway what with all the sweets in the house from Easter still. Beside, I have a kid who likes to bake, so usually I pawn that off on her…
I had a craving for peanut butter cookies for an entire day. Couldn’t get them out of my mind. All I kept thinking about was these cookies.
Well it was raining and I had to pick up a gaggle of girls from school at lunch and bring them home. They’re going to want cookies. They always want cookies. So I thought, why not make some? There are three started jars of peanut butter in the kitchen (kids! ack! finish a jar before you start a new one!) which was perfect for my baking adventure.
I am not a baker.
I am however an eater of baked goods. 😛
Anyway this recipe is super simple, and what’s best about it is the fact that there is no flour in it. Wheat flour makes my eczema break out more, so I try to avoid it as often as possible.
I took this recipe and adapted it a touch. This is the result:
I ate 3. Along with a cup of tea on a rainy day. Perfect.
I think I will keep this recipe handy and mix it up with seed butter, almond butter, and different additives. For example, I didn’t have any chocolate chips left, but there’s an abundance of Easter chocolate still in the house. I simply beheaded a chocolate Easter bunny and chopped that into ‘chips’ to add to my batter.
The result was the same. Delish!
