“Necessity is a mother of all inventions” one of my favourite “mantras” – my family always want to eat healthy and I always like to bake and cook – so I have to invent, adapt and tweak recipes to come up with something that is healthy, creative and tastes amazing.
These peanut butter cookies have ticked all of the boxes and all it took was putting a list of “acceptable cookie ingredients” together and then coming up with a recipe by adding a bit of this and that and Voila!! Peanut butter cookies were created.
I am proud of this creation and I am already contemplating how I can add a few more goodies to make it super-duper – maybe some desiccated coconut and crushed almonds and instead of the margarine I can use some solid coconut oil, and some almond butter instead of peanut butter – these little changes could really work well – will post an update once I have tried it.
