PEANUT BUTTER AND OATMEAL COOKIES - FLOURLESS AND EGGLESS!

                         Who loves Peanut Butter??......I do! ...I do!.....I DO!!! :D This is what I call finger licking good :)

                         These cookies were so crisp and I could taste the entire peanut butter without the interference of flour! To make it a tiny bit healthier and to eat these cookies without any guilt, I added some oatmeal to the batter :) how clever, aye? :O

                         I tried making bigger cookies as well ( as seen in the last picture) but they started breaking quite easily because the batter was flourless.

                        Those who are trying this at home, one advice to you............try not to eat up the batter before baking them into cookies!!............YES! Im talking from experience :(  why did it have to taste soooooooo gooooooood??!!.....
 



INGREDIENTS:
1 cup peanut butter (I used creamy)
1/2 cup oats ( I used quick cook oats)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt



PROCESS:
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar and the peanut butter and mix till the sugar completely disappears into the peanut butter 
  • Add the oats.
  • Add the vanilla essence, baking powder and salt and combine.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 deg celcius. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • using a spoon or your hands, scoop a tiny bit of batter ( about 1 tsp size) and place it on the tray.
  • Alternatively, you can also use tiny paper cups like how I have used in the pictures.
  • bake for about 10-15 mins or until slightly browned.
  • it will harden a bit once cooled, so dont worry if its soft as soon as you take them out from the oven.

 notes:
  • since this recipe does not use flour, they are very fragile, so its best not to make big cookies. 
  • Better to stick to bite size.
