If you love peanut butter….

For a tasty and fool-proof recipe try these two ingredient (yes, you read that right), two bite, peanut butter cookies.

It doesn’t get much easier than this for a quick energy peanut butter cookie fix.  I tried this months ago and was meaning to post.  But I thought nah, nobody is going to believe you can make cookies this simply.  But you can.  Mind you, they tend to crumble more unless you add something like a little rice malt syrup to help bind them.

They have a lot of protein without the sugar.  A win-win situation.

You will need:

  • 1 cup natural 100 per cent peanut butter.
  • 1 free range egg.
  • Optional extras: salt, cacao nibs, cacao powder, rice malt syrup.

1. Preheat your oven to  350℉ (180℃) and pour your peanut butter into a bowl. Since it’s natural peanut butter and has no added emulsifiers, it should be a little runny. This will make it easy to stir.

2. Add your egg and stir. Keep going until it firms up to a cookie dough consistency – you should be able to roll it into a ball with your hands. “If you like a salty peanut butter, this is the right time to add a pinch of rock salt.

3. Take Tablespoon amounts of the mixture and roll into balls with your hands. Place on a lined tray and gently squash them to a disc shape.  Use a fork if you like.

4. Optional: Add a tablespoon of cacao powder to half the remaining cookie mix. If you have it on hand, cacao makes these super rich. Almost like a peanut butter cup.

5. Pop your cookies into the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown with a slightly cracked surface.

That’s just the way this cookie crumbles.
