Confession. Even when I'm dieting or just eating healthy, I have to end my day (and sometimes most meals) with a little something sweet. If you haven't made my favorite Superfood Muffins, definitely give those a try There are times when only a cookie will do.
Last night was one of those times!
Based on my favorite food bloggers' recipe, here is the cure for the semi-healthy cookie craving.
1 cup creamy peanut butter, room temp.
2/3 cup brown sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla
1 tsp coconut extract
2 eggs, beaten
2/3 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup dairy free chocolate chips
1/3 cup of walnuts
Preheat oven to 350
Mix the peanut butter, sugar, coconut extract and vanilla. Then, mix in the eggs, oats and baking soda. Lastly, fold in the walnuts and chips. Place small spoonfuls on a baking sheet.
Cook for 11-14 minutes. Cool. Devour.
These cookies are not good for you if you eat the entire batch (clears throats and side eyes hubby)!
Makes 18 cookies.
