These are Maggie’s cookies, but she won’t eat them. She likes baking more than she likes eating baked goods! I get requests from her to make a cake…. and we will. And then she’ll have two bites and then be done… leaving an entire cake just sitting around asking to be eaten. Trouble. She had a blast making these little peanut butter cookies: rolling the “dough” into balls, flattening them, and especially pressing the fork into the dough. I had left the kitchen to grab something from somewhere, and when I cam back, she had prepared a bunch by her self. So cute.
Anyway, these are suuuper easy and delicious. Unless you don’t like peanut butter, which apparently Maggie doesn’t!
- 2 cups organic peanut butter, no sugar added
- about 2 cups sweetener of your choice, I used xylitol and only used about 1 1/2 cups.
- 2 eggs
- dash of vanilla
- any other little goodies, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, mini M&Ms…!
preheat oven to 350° F, combine all ingredients, roll into small balls, flatten, imprint with a fork, bake for about 10 minutes until brown. they will be soft when coming out of the oven, leave to cool on wire rack. i loosely covered them over night in cling-film and they were crunchy in the morning. with a glass of almond milk, that’s a pretty awesome breakfast.
