Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 1/2 cup regular oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (heaping) 60% cacoa chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add 1 cup of regular oats to a food processor or blender. Blend until the oat turns into a flour.
  3. Add oat flour to large bowl along with 1 1/2 cups of regular oats, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. In a medium bowl add peanut butter, maple syrup, an egg and vanilla extract. Using a whisk, mix everything together.
  5. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  6. Using a spatula, fold all the ingredients together until they are combined.
  7. Use a cookie scoop or a tablespoon to scoop out dough and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicon baking mat. Gently smash the cookies down.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and place on cooking rack.
  10. In the meantime, add chocolate chips to a small flat bowl (a ramekin would work). Place bowl in microwave for 30 second increments, stirring each time until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  11. Dunk the bottom half of each cookie in the chocolate and place on a parchment lined baking sheet to cool.
  12. HINT: to cool quickly and eat faster place the chocolate dipped cookies in the refrigerator until chocolate hardens on the bottom of the cookie
