Simple simple simple. This recipe is adapted from a recipe from Real-Life Vegan by Victoria Laine. She has fantastic recipes that are super good for you. I wish I could take credit for this recipe because its so, so good- but alas, I can’t 😦 The only thing I changed was the steps in mixing.
So, what you’ll need:
2 1/2 cup oats (certified GF if need be)
1 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or agave, honey, etc)
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup raisins/chocolate/anything you want to mix in really
Preheat your oven to 350F.
Here comes the easy part – aka the whole recipe. Throw everything into a bowl and mix it together. Once it has been mixed, scoop out cookie sized portions and place them on a cookie sheet (greased or covered with parchment paper). Bake for 10 minutes and voila! You are done. I recommend letting them sit for a while and cool…if you try to pick them up right away they are likely to fall apart. Once they cool they hold together quite nicely! If you like a less ‘chunky’ cookie, instead of hand mixing the ingredients together, place all the ingredients (save 1/2 cup raisins) in a food processor, transfer to a bowl, add the rest of the raisins, and then follow the directions above.
Side note: these go great with a cup of tea, family, and puzzles.
