BREAKFAST PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

Ever since having kids I just can't kick the sweet treat craving. So I am always trying to find ways to create sweet treats that are healthier than store bought. This week I am sharing a recipe that not only has very little natural sweets, but also no eggs. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 prepared flax eggs | ( 1 tbsp ground flax to 3 tbsp water per egg)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat over 350°F
  2. Start by making the prepared flax eggs. Put 2 tbsp ground flax and 6 tbsp water in a small bowl. Whisk together and let sit in your refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  3. While you wait, get all other ingredients ready and into a large bowl.
  4. Line 2 cookie trays with parchment paper.
  5. Mix all ingredients together including your flax eggs.
  6. Scoop out cookie mixture onto your trays.
  7. Use a fork to make a fun design - push fork down in each direction!
  8. Bake for about 10-12 minutes.

These peanut butter cookies are going to come out light and soft, not crispy.

enjoy!

much love-
