So rather than eat peanut paste by the jarful, I decided to turn it into a cookie, in the hope they might satiate my cravings a little quicker than scooping it straight from the jar.
These cookies are super simple, with only four ingredients required, a food processor and about 15 minutes in the oven. Be warned though, these moreish morsels are not all that dissimilar to taking to a jar of peanut paste with a dessert spoon.
Whipped peanut cookies
- 1/4 cup organic peanut paste + 1 tablespoon
- 1/4 cup organic virgin coconut oil
- 2/3 cup wholemeal spelt flour (or regular wheat wholemeal flour)
- 1 tablespoon organic rice malt syrup (or organic honey)
The dough should come together quite easily now. With your hands, shape into small rounds, approximately a tablespoon of dough each.
Flatten the cookies with a fork and place in the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before eating.
Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
