These cookies couldn’t be simpler, especially when you need a little sweet fix and you need it NOW!  They are so quick and easy …. and almost guilt free.  Good protein and fats come from the peanut butter and the egg, and the raw cacoa nibs have superpowers of their own, choc(!)ful of antioxidant flavonoids, essential minerals such as magnesium, iron and sulfur and even raise serotonin levels to boost your mood.  This recipe uses coconut sugar which has a delicious butterscotchy caramel flavour, has a lower GI and is infinitely higher in minerals than its highly refined counterpart.  But yes, sugar is still sugar, but what the heck, a couple of these every once in a while won’t do you any harm!

I based the recipe on one I found from Green Healthy Cooking which has loads of other scrummy recipes which are definitely worth checking out.

So get the kettle on quick, these are perfect little pick me up for elevenses.

Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 170 °C. Mix the peanut butter, coconut sugar, egg and bicarb in a food mixer until thoroughly combined.
  2. Roll the mixture into small balls and put in the freezer for 10 mins (I've been known to bypass this bit through pure greed). Pop onto a lined baking tray and flatten them with your fingers or the back of a spoon.
  3. Sprinkle with the raw cacao nibs and press them onto the top of the cookies. Bake for 10 mins.
