Ok, so I said that baking isn’t my thing, and it really isn’t, but when I saw this recipe I just had to give it a whirl. And since I’m currently on staycation, what better time than right now?
Credit for the recipe goes to Georgeats, a Melbourne food blogger, with just a couple of suggestions from me. These cookies are quick and easy to make, and peanuttylicious!
Makes 6 – 8 small/medium cookies
1/2 cup 100% peanut butter
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
A good pinch of salt
2 squares Lindt salted chocolate
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Light-flavoured oil to combat stickiness
Preheat oven to 180°C. Put everything except the chocolate into a food processor and mix until it starts to stick together and form a ball. Break the chocolate up into little chips and mix it into the rest of the batter with a spoon that you have coated with a smidge of oil.
Rub a little of the oil onto your hands to help stop the batter from sticking. Spoon out 6 – 8 evenly sized balls, rolling them around in your hands then pressing them onto a lined tray.
Bake for 10 – 15 minutes until they reach your perfect ratio of crunchy:chewy.
These cookies were calling my name and by now you are probably hearing them too. Go get ’em!
