With kids going back to school next week, ensuring they have snacks that not only taste good but are good for them can be a daunting task for any parent. My Divine *Five Ingredient* Peanut Butter Cookies are kid-tested and approved, and will make a great addition to any lunch box. Plus they’re sooo easy to make (so feel free to snag yourself a few).
Zain’s *5 Ingredient* Peanut Butter Cookies
*makes a dozen cookies
1 Cup Chunky Organic Peanut Butter
1 Whole Egg (vegans sub for 2 Tbsp Egg Replacer)
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1 Cup Sucanat
1 Tsp Natural Vanilla
*note: if you don’t have sucanat, you can sub for coconut sugar OR 1/2 cup flour of your choice, I like oat or coconut flour and 3 packets stevia
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2. Blend all ingredients together until a thick well mix dough forms (I do this by hand but an electric mixer works great too)
3. Roll into balls (as large or small as you wish) and place on parchment covered baking sheet
4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Once removed, use a fork to make decorative designs and allow to cool for 15 minutes until cookies harden.
*additional ingredients: 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips (naughty naughty but so yummy yummy), 4 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 50 raisins.
