I have very exciting things to tell you guys.
And no, it’s not what college I’m going to, or that I got a boyfriend. Oh, and we can also rule out a growth spurt.
No, the exciting thing is THESE COOKIES. Can you guys tell I’m on a peanut butter kick? I feel like in the past month, I’ve done more peanut butter recipes than every before. I’m also going through a baking phase, if ya couldn’t tell. My best friend, Simmi, LOVES baking, so Sim- thanks 😉
Okay, but these cookies have a story behind them. A few weeks ago, I was awoken at 5 AM by my dogs barking to be fed. So, I walked up stairs and fed them. Then, I proceeded to lay in my bed for two hours and try to convince myself to fall back asleep with no avail. So, I got up, went on a run, and made a trip to Whole Foods Market Del Mar. Shoutout to them for being open so early! I walked through the isles, trying to think of recipes for you guys and trying to battle my hunger. Thankfully, they were sampling these 365 Everyday Value Dark Chocolate Baking Chunks and YOU GUYS. GUYS. THESE CHOCOLATE CHIPS.
First off, they’re fair trade, which is a BIG plus for me! A few months ago, I went to a class about fair trade products and it really opened my eyes to the food that’s out there. I now try to buy mostly fair trade, which is why I love Whole Foods Market Del Mar. Plus, they’re the perfect amount of sweetness and bitterness (since they’re dark chocolate). When I tried one of the chunks, I knew what I was going to make, and that was these cookies.
These cookies combine everyones favorite things- peanut butter and chocolate! I’m always craving those two things, so why not put them together? Alright, let’s dig in!
- 1 cup oats (I used quick cooking ones)
- ¼ cup chocolate chip chunks
- 1 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- In a bowl, combine all your ingredients minus the peanut butter and maple syrup.
- Next, add in the peanut butter and mix with the dry ingredients.
- Slowly pour in the maple syrup, and mix until everything is combined.
- Form fourteen ball like shapes with your hands and line them on parchment paper. Stick in the fridge for two hours to harden up, then enjoy!
