Peanut Butter Cookie Stuff

2 Oct

Sometimes recipes fail. Miserably. And there is no way to revive them (ahem, blue eggs). But sometimes, a little thing called serendipity occurs, and what appears a fail ends up being a brand new, wonderful discovery! This is the story of how “cookie stuff” was invented. I attempted to make Chocolate Covered Katie’s flourless oatmeal-raisin cookies. But I somehow deviated from the recipe in the process, and my cookie dough would NOT form cookies. In a frustrated huff, I dumped it into a small glass container and baked it anyway, because why not.

What resulted was a gift from the gods. It was chewy, soft, warm and tasted much like the oatmeal-raisin cookies it was supposed to have made. But instead, you could eat this with a spoon. And that’s exactly what I did! My sister and I have since dubbed this creation “cookie stuff” and we make it rather often, and in different flavors. Our favorite so far is peanut butter chocolate chip. Check back in the future for our other flavor combos, but give this one a try now!

I’ve made this as unprocessed as I can, but note that this is STILL a dessert. The oats replace what would normally be flour in a cookie, and the use of honey or maple syrup helps delete the processed ingredients altogether. There’s a great post on Eating Rules, differentiating the difference between oatmeals, and while rolled oats are slightly processed, they’re still a better option than flour.

Peanut Butter Cookie Stuff

Not pretty to look at, but it tastes and smells amazing!!

Peanut Butter Cookie Stuff, inspired by Chocolate Covered Katie

  • 3/4 C rolled oats, or about 2/3 C ground oats
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 packet pure stevia
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar, or honey/maple syrup to make it unprocessed/vegan
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp creamy natural peanut butter, or other nut butter if allergic
  • 3 tbsp skim or nondairy milk
  • handful chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 375. Grease a small ramekin dish.

In a small bowl, melt peanut butter for 30 seconds if not already runny.

Grind oats in a food processor. Transfer to medium bowl and mix together with soda, stevia, sweetener, salt, cinnamon and chocolate chips, if using. Stir well.

Stir in melted peanut butter and milk until well combined.

Transfer to greased dish and bake for 9 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool at least 5 minutes before you dig in. Have a glass of milk at the ready, or at least a nice cup of tea you’re gonna need it!
