So apparently I bake when I’m bored! Having a quiet Saturday evening and was craving something sweat. After having a moment of weakness at Whole Foods the other night, I have some gluten-free “Oreos” in my cupboard, but I’d really rather eat something I’ve made. So last night I cracked open Oat and Raisin recipe again and tonight I went for Peanut Butter…
I had made a version of three ingredient peanut butter cookies in the past, but apparently didn’t post the recipe, so I found the following, basic recipe:
1 C Peanut Butter
1 C Sugar
And I changed it:
1 C Nut Butter – Peanut & Mystery (because that’s what I happened to have in the fridge)
1/2 C Organic Cane Sugar
1 Scoop Vanilla (Whey Gourmet Naturelle) Protein Powder
Roll into balls and flatten with a fork, bake at 350 for approximately 10 mins.
I definitely feel better eating these over the craptastic, overly refined “Oreos”, but I know I still shouldn’t eat the whole batch 😦

Thanks Alannah. I’m going to try those for the family. I wonder if I can get around the sugar part and use a bit of maple syrup.. Probably not since sugar is what holds things together.
It’s so hard to leave Whole Foods without some sort of baked good in tow… For me, it’s their chocolate cupcakes, but now I might have to check out the gluten free oreos — after I try these peanut butter cookies!
I highly suggest avoiding them…not satisfying enough given how bad they are 😦
Good to know! I’ll just stick to your recipe then. :]
