You are going to LOVE this easy and delicious recipe! These ‘healthy’ peanut butter cookies are without a doubt my favorite treat this season. They are made from delicious ingredients such as almond flour, coconut flakes, banana, nut butter… ehm; need I say more? You know you want a bite ; ).
In case you are wondering, yes; they are gluten -& dairy free, but they are not vegan (I used eggs). If you are vegan, you can try this recipe without the eggs, but make sure you add an extra tbsp. of chia seeds (for the stickiness) and a splash of (almond) milk.
Optional decoration: Raisins

Crack the eggs and separate the yolk from the egg white. We only use the yolks. Mash the banana and whisk this together with the yolks. Now add the almond flour, chia seeds, nut butter, baking powder and coconut oil. Knead the dough with your hands, forming it into a ball. Let this ball of dough rest in your fridge for about 30 minutes.
Set the oven to 180 °C. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin until it is flat (about 2,5 cm). This yummy dough is very sticky so what I always do while rolling it out is; I place the dough in between two sheets of baking paper and then I roll the pin on top of the paper… Once it reaches the right thickness you can pull of the paper and it won’t stick to your pin! Now get your Christmas shaped molds out of your pantry and stick them one by one into the dough. Once you have no more dough left to stick the molds in, you can form a ball of dough again and repeat the process. Repeat this until there is no more dough left.
Place the cookies one by one on a, covered in baking paper, oven tray. Put some almond flour on top of this paper so your cookies won’t get stuck when they’re finished. Put the cookies into the oven for about 15-20 minutes. After they’re finished let them cool of for about 20 minutes. They are far more crispy when you eat them cold!
Yay! All done. You could also put them in a cute cookie-jar and wrap a nice ribbon around it as a gift for your in-laws.
…Baked goodies is always a lovely present.
