Peater Butnut Cookies

There’s been a jar of peanut butter in our kitchen for months… only one thing for it, Peanut Butter Cookies.

We like to mix it up a bit.

Covid, kids, broken doors, antibiotics, chalazion, wall papering! argh!…
I had to take my mind of things for a bit…

There’s been a jar of peanut butter in our kitchen for months, and it’s usually only me that eats it. But for some reason even I’ve gone off peanut butter sandwiches!

So, as I say, I needed a distraction – hence Peanut Butter Cookies.

The easiest! Four ingredients, 15 mins.

  • about 200g or peanut butter
  • about 200g of caster sugar
  • about 100g of breakfast oats 
  • 1 egg*

*incidentally, I can recommend the double-yokers from Sunrise Farm Seagrave!

  1. Heat oven to 180C.
  2. Mix the peanut butter, sugar, oats, and egg until smooth.
  3. Place balls on a baking tray – I used an ice-cream scoop.
  4. Flatten each ball a tad.
  5. Bake for about 12 minutes, until just starting look brown*.
  6. Cool on a baking tray.

Don’t over cook them or they will be hard when cooled. If you take out when just turning brown, they should remain chewy on the inside.
