Recipe: Nut Butter Cookies

Oh my goodness I love simple recipes. This one is SO simple … and you end up with a crunchy yummy little biscuit. These little biscuits have no flour, no sugar, no dairy, and no tricky substitutes for those items. They are not super sweet, but just sweet enough and if you want them sweeter maybe add the whole banana rather than the half (and if you use the whole banana, then try leaving out the egg – which would make them vegan too)

They are just perfect for afternoon tea with a glass of milk or a cup of tea.

Nut Butter Cookies

NUT BUTTER COOKIES

INGREDIENTS

200g nut butter of your choice

1oog coconut – I used desiccated but I think it would work with shredded coconut too

1/2 banana

1 egg (or try it without)

METHOD

Mix all ingredients together in your food processor or mash all ingredients together with a fork. Roll into balls and cook at 160C until browned on top. Because of the high oil content in the nut butter, and depending upon how long you blend it for in the food processor, a bit of oil might bubble around the edges while they cook. Mine practically fried themselves in the oven.
