These cookies were hands down the best thing I’ve ever made. They are so easy and it was very tempting to eat the entire batter. These are great for dessert, a quick snack, or even breakfast (which I made them for). The recipe makes around 15-20 small cookies.
1 1/2 cup quick oats
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 egg or flax egg (1 tbsp flax meal, 2.5 tbsp water)
Optional: nuts, dried cranberries, chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F
In a bowl, whisk the egg. If you are using an flax egg, whisk the water and flax and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Add in the oatmeal, peanut butter,and maple syrup and mix well.
Fold in any add ins. I used peanuts, but I actually liked it better without.
Take a cookie scoop and add to a baking sheet. Flatten the cookies using a fork.
Bake for 10 minutes and let cool.
