Last week I ran a mini Netflix marathon, and about half-way through I had a major craving for something sweet. I was already in my jammies and in no mood to go to the store, so I did what any sensible woman with a sugar craving would do... I turned to Pinterest.
I began searching for simple cookie recipes - scanning for the ingredients I already had. I was missing butter, flour, oil, and chocolate chips (huge disappointment), but I was determined to make something work.
I ended up combining a few different recipes and came up with something of my own. I'm almost positive that anyone could make these cookies with items they already have in their kitchen.
Easy-Peasy Peanut Butter Cookies
- Peanut Butter - 1 cup
- Honey - 1/2 cup
- Brown Sugar - 1/4 cup
- Egg - 2
- Baking Soda - 1 Tsp.
- Oats - 1 cup *
- Vanilla Extract - 2 Tsp. *
- Salt - Pinch *
- * indicates an optional ingredient
- Honey and brown sugar can substitute each other. For example: you could either do 1 cup of Honey or 1/2 cup of brown sugar. I decided to combine them for the best of both worlds
- Preheat oven to 350
- Line baking sheet with parchment paper
- Blend all ingredients except the oats (don't over mix)
- Briefly blend the oats
- Bake 8 - 10 minutes (undercooking is ok)
I baked about 6 cookies and froze the rest of the dough. I ate the dough throughout the week, so I can't exactly tell you how many cookies this recipes makes - oops. The cookies and dough were very delicious and definitely hit the spot!
