A healthier version of the buttery and famous American chocolate chip cookies. Here is the recipe that also includes peanut butter
We offer you a healthy version of the very famous chocolate chips cookies made from oats and peanut butter.
They are as delicious as the original buttery ones, but a temptation to which you can give in without guilt.
Flakes and oatmeal
In the recipe there is no flour except that of oats.
If you don't find it, there is no problem because you can easily prepare it at home by simply chopping the oat flakes very finely. There is no butter, but peanut butter.
The recipe for oat chocolate chip cookies
75 g oatmeal
75 g oat flakes
70 g dark chocolate
140 g maple syrup
140 g peanut butter
60 g water
60 g brown sugar
6 g baking soda
a pinch of salt
In a bowl add the peanut butter, maple syrup, sugar, vanilla and water and mix with a whisk until you obtain a homogeneous mixture.
Add the oatmeal and oat flakes and mix to mix.
Chop the melted chocolate and add it to the dough then leave to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Obtain 10 equal balls from the dough and place them on the parchment paper spaced apart.
Bake at 180 degrees in a static oven for 15 minutes.
Attention to cooking!
Cookies are ready when they have a golden crust.
Once taken out of the oven they will be very soft so do not touch them and let them cool well.
From cold they will become crunchy.
You can replace the peanut butter with the Almond Butter and also brown sugar with it coconut sugar.
You can also add in the dough a pinch of salt which generally greatly enhances the taste of chocolate and if you want to dare – and we suggest you do it – decorate these biscuits with grains of salt.
Instead of baking soda you can put the vanilla yeast for desserts and there will be no difference in cooking.
Finally, if you don't like the aromatic taste of maple syrup, you can replace it with malt or rice syrup.
