Chewy Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches

These Chewy Peanut Butter Cookie sandwiches were totally improvised using some ingredients I got from the SourceBulkFoods. I didn't expect they would turn out so darn good! The aim was to create a treat higher in protein with a lower Glycemic Index. The added peanut butter in between is of course optional, the cookies on their own are so delicious and best enjoyed about 1/2 hour after making. In saying that they will keep for up to a week ready for you to enjoy with your favourite cuppa!



Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbs coconut sugar
  • 2 tbs smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbs melted vegan butter (I used nettlex)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • few drops vanilla essence
  • 1 tbs non dairy milk such as coconut or nut milk

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees centigrade
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl until incorporated.
  3. spoon a tablespoon amount into a ball. Ensure the balls are all spaced out over a lined baking tray. The reason for this is they flatten out by themselves so there is no need for you to do this yourself.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes. They cook really quickly so keep an eye on the browning around edges which is an indication they are just about done.
  5. Allow to rest for 15-20 minutes before touching otherwise they may fall apart.
  6. Enjoy as a cookie or sand which between a tsp of peanut butter.
