HEALTH WITH JESSICA

{NO Flour} Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Cookies 

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! 

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup peanut butter or other nut butter

2/3 cup coconut sugar

1  tsp vanilla

2 eggs

1 1/3 cup old fashioned oats 

1 tsp baking soda

2/3 cup DARK chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

 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

ENJOY!!

Dark Chocolate PALEO Truffles

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! 


INGREDIENTS 

4 dates

1 Tbsp Almond Butter

2 Tbsp dark chocolate chips (85%-100%) 

Coconut sugar 

DIRECTIONS

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
