How To Make Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies! 3 Ingredients & No Baking!

Turn your favorite peanut butter cookies into a healthier version! This healthy version of our favorite cookie has powdered peanut butter, coconut sugar, and oat flour as its main ingredients. This recipe requires no baking. It will take about 30 minutes to prepare.

Ingredients:

• 1/4 cup coconut sugar
• 1/4 cup water
• 1/2 cup powdered peanut butter
• 1 cup oat flour

Instructions:

Prepare a medium or large bowl.
Add coconut sugar, powdered peanut butter, and oat flour.
Whisk to combine well.
Gradually add water into the mixture and continually whisk it until it looks like a dough.
Place inside the fridge for 15 minutes.
Get a spoonful of the mixture and form into small balls.
Place the balls on parchment paper.
Press down each ball using a fork.
Create fork marks on top of each cookie.

Tips and ideas:

If you are using regular peanut butter, skip the water. Mix the ingredients using a food processer rather than mixing it by hand.

If the mixture is too sticky and you are having problems forming the cookies, you can dip your fork in olive oil before using it.

You can eat the peanut butter cookies right away or put them in the fridge for 15 minutes to set before eating.
