Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

March 20, 2013 3 Comments

cookies I'm in two minds about baking lately. I do miss the tranquility and satisfaction it gives me but at the same time, since starting to eat clean about a year ago, anytime I have a piece of pastry my body automatically rejects it. The solution? Find recipes that use very minimal butter, oil, sugar, and sweetness in general. This evening I had a serious urge to do some baking. The last time I baked was over the Christmas break where I made some "healthy" oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies and they were fantastic. The problem? I went to find the recipe again tonight and couldn't remember when I grabbed it from. The happy result was finding a recipe for peanut butter oatmeal cookies - win!

The only alterations I made to Ambitious Kitchen's recipe was:
  • adding 1 teaspoon of cinammon
  • using a total of 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • using Whittaker's 72% Dark Ghana Chocolate Sante Block for chocolate chunks

The cookies came out fantastically fluffy, not too sweet, generously sized and only took 9 minutes in the oven.  An absolute hit.
