Guilt Free Peanut Butter Coconut Cookies

You’d never believe these amazing mini cookies were ‘healthy’. They don’t quite count as 1 of your 5 a day but they are certainly a lot healthier than sugar packed cookies. These guilt free peanut butter cookies are made using honey to sweeten and with a protein boost from the natural peanut butter. They are even made using oat flour (instant oats) instead of traditional flour. These cute little cookies are great to satisfy those mid afternoon cravings for something sweet yet leaving you guilt free.

The Ingredients:
190g MyProtein® Peanut Butter
6tbsp Natural Honey
1tsp Vanilla Extract
90g MyProtein® Instant Oats (Oat Flour)
1tsp Bicarbonate Soda
50g Unsweetened Desiccated Coconut

The How-To:
Preheat oven to 175c. Line a baking tray with baking paper / parchment paper.
In a bowl mix together the peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract until evenly combined.
Mix in the instant oats and bicarbonate soda.
Ensure this is really well mixed together. This should form a firm dough.
Break off small pieces of this dough about the same size as chocolate truffles.
Roll this into a ball between your palms. Roll in the coconut and place on the baking tray.
Using a fork press the cookies down slightly. This also leaves a nice decorative imprint.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 7 mins.
The cookies will still be quite soft when you take them out of the oven but don’t worry they firm up as they cool.
You’re Done!
