Oatmeal and peanut butter cookies

Oatmeal and peanut butter cookies (serves 12)


2 eggs

180 g crunchy peanut butter

3/4 cup quick oats

1/3 cup self-raising flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1-2 tablespoon of milk

A handful of chocolate chips



1) preheat oven to 160 degrees (fan forced)

2) beat eggs in a mixing bowl. Add vanilla extract

3) combine dry ingredients together (flour, oats, baking powder, sugar)

4) use a spatula to combine dry and wet mixture together

5) add peanut butter and mix

6) add a tiny amount of milk to improve the consistency of your dough. Use a spatula to mix thoroughly

7) line tray with baking paper

8) place one teaspoon of dough on the tray and use the back of your hand or a wooden spoon to flatten it out so it takes a round shape

9) repeat with remaining mixture and leave enough room for cookie to expand (I did 6 on a tray). Top with chocolate chips (see last pic)

10) bake for 20 minutes until golden brown
