I’m ashamed to admit that when I was thinking about what to title this recipe, “Two Minute Cookies” or “__ Ingredient No Bake Cookies” came to mind. There are seven ingredients, by the way. I’m not very clever when it comes to naming recipes. However, I am excellent at eating them.
These are perfect for when an emergency craving for sweet & salty strike. All you need are seven ingredients, and in two minutes you will have Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls.
How am I not in marketing or advertising….
In a bowl, combine:
2/3 cup dry oats
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Then stir in:
1/4 cup crunchy (or smooth) peanut butter
1 tbsp pure maple syrup (honey, agave or brown rice syrup will also work)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Stir until moist (I hate that word) then roll into balls…. ugh, this sentence needs to end NOW.
Since you may have been laying awake at night wondering what Court and I did for our wedding anniversary, I’m going to tell you.
We celebrated with food. All day long. For breakfast, I made Court lemon pancakes with maple syrup.
I ate Chocolate Banana Muffins with almond butter.
Court surprised me at lunchtime with four of our favorite sushi rolls and miso soup. Bless him.
Before dinner, we went for a walk.
Then came home and made Spicy Charred Calamari Salads.
For dessert, I surprised him with a flour-less chocolate souffle. Our wedding cake was chocolate raspberry, and our favorite dessert is the souffle from Roys Hawaiian Fusion.
This is actually serving number two. We ate the first massive slice with a side of vanilla bean ice cream with mashed blackberries and a touch of chocolate buttercream. I also gave us type 2 diabetes for our anniversary.
The cake was to die for – it’s 50% butter, so you can imagine how rich and decadent it was.
And now you can sleep well tonight.
