Time

Servings

8 cookies

[/et_pb_column]

Ingredients

1 tbl ground flax seeds + 3 tbl water

150 g peanut butter (I used a crunchy one)

65 g brown sugar (coconut sugar works as well)

50 g oat flour (ground oats)

1 tsp baking powder

dash of salt

*if you’d like to use coconut sugar, the taste will be just as delicious, but the cookies will be slightly less chewy

Method

1

Preheat the oven to 180°C and prepare a baking tray.

2

Mix the finely ground flax seeds and water and let sit for about 5 minutes.

4

Add peanut butter, sugar and salt into a bowl and use a handheld mixer to mix together.

5

Mix the oat flour with the baking powder and add to the bowl. Mix together (dough will be crumbly).

6

Use your hands to make bowls with about 1 tbl of dough (balls about 2-2.5 cm ∅). Then slightly press them into thick mini burgers and put them onto the baking tray.

7

Bake for about 14 minutes (they will be soft).

Let them cool down for at least 30 minutes before eating as the cookies need some time to get that crunchy-soft consistency. Best consistency after a few hours 🙂
