I LOVE baking and I LOVE peanut butter cookies! Today was the perfect drizzly Oregon Spring day to get my bake on 🙌🏻 Oh these are SO tasty! Definitely a treat as they do have some sugar…but far healthier than your typical cookie!
1 cup peanut butter or other nut butter
2/3 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
1 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup DARK chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In a large bowl mix peanut butter, coconut sugar, eggs and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add dry ingredients & mix well. Gently stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop cookies by the teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I like using a cookie dough scoop).
Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes and remove when edges barely begin to turn a golden brown.
Makes about 20 cookies
I LOVE sweets. Like really love. However, following a PALEO template for the past 2 weeks, I really haven’t craved sugar. And…I feel amazing!! Tonight I decided to try a PALEO dessert. It looked delicious! I admit, I tried a PALEO apple crisp the other night and it was FAIL!! Ick.
I was surprised at how creamy and tasty these were. In fact, I used 86% dark chocolate…my son HATES dark chocolate and this stuff was super dark! But…he had two truffles and would’ve had more but we polished them off to fast!
1 Tbsp Almond Butter
2 Tbsp dark chocolate chips (85%-100%)
Soak dates 10 min in hot water then drain.
Purée dates in food processor then add almond butter and melted chocolate and blend just until mixed.
Take a heaping spoonful of mixture and roll onto ball. Roll in coconut sugar.
If these last, you can keep them in a sealed container in the freezer. They didn’t last long enough for us!!
Makes about 6 truffles
