Ingredients

  • 1 egg*
  • 100 g soft light brown sugar*
  • 300 g natural peanut butter
  • 125 g jumbo rolled gluten-free oats
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt plus extra for sprinkling
  • 100 g dark chocolate chips melted

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
  • Whisk the egg and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until pale and smooth.
  • Add the peanut butter, oats, bicarbonate of soda and sea salt and mix until the batter is smooth and thick.
  • Using the palms of your hands roll up the dough into balls of about 45g each and place on a baking sheet a couple of inches apart. Press down slightly so the top of the cookies are flat.
  • Bake for 6-8 minutes until the cookies are just turning golden.
  • Remove from the oven and leave on the baking sheet for 5 minutes to firm up before moving them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Dip each cookie in melted chocolate and sprinkle on sea salt then leave to set.

Notes

*For a vegan cookie, replace the egg with 1 chia egg. (1 tablespoon ground chia seeds whisked into 3 tablespoons water and left to set for 5 minutes in the fridge. Use then the way you would the normal egg)
*For a refined sugar-free cookie, replace the sugar with 8 pitted dates, blended to a puree. The mixture will be a little stickier before going into the oven but comes out pretty much the same cookie consistency.
