So here we have it, a delicious combination of two of my favourite foods brought together to create a delicious harmony of flavours in cookie form. What’s not to like here really? Peanut butter? Love that. Coconut? Love that. Cookies? LOVE those things! What’s even better is that these are also incredibly quick and easy to make, with very minimal fuss and barely any equipment required- therefore less washing up (another bonus!).
Being a health food blogger, you can probably imagine the great extent of my nut butter collection in my kitchen cupboard and I wanted to create something with an almost empty jar of peanut butter to try and free up a little space (which is probably going to end up being filled with a new jar of nut butter ha!) I was also a little short on time during this particular day and wanted to create something fairly simple that wouldn’t leave me with a whole lotta’ mess to clean up before my house mates returned home. Queue the four ingredient coconut peanut butter cookies!
Writing this post at just gone 7pm when I’m yet to have dinner was probably not my brightest idea, seeing as my hunger is beginning to grow by the second. Alls I can think about right now is that amazing smell of sweet peanut butter goodness that just fills the kitchen as you gently melt the coconut oil, nectar and peanut butter together to create a delicious gooey peanutty caramel like mixture! Hungry yet? From there, alls you then have to do is mix in the flour, make some cookies, bake them and then tuck in! You could always make them EVEN MORE delicious by drizzling over some melted chocolate.. or you could even add in some chocolate chips before baking.. or raisins.. or chopped nuts.. the possibilities could just go on and on!
- 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 3 tbsp peanut butter
- 3 tbsp coconut syrup
- Preheat the oven to 190c.
- Gently heat the coconut oil, peanut butter and coconut syrup in a pan and mix until well combined. Remove from the heat and stir in the buckwheat flour.
- Mould the dough together with your hands (make sure it's not too hot!) and shape into cookies.
- Place these onto a lined baking tray and bake for 7-10 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool completely.
