Melted “Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups”
This originally started as an experiment in cookie-making without granulated sugar options. I was hopeful after I saw how beautiful the cookie dough was and how nicely it formed into balls. But, after about 7 minutes in the oven, I saw that the cookies were melting all over the place! I left them until they’d completely melted into round disks, then took them out and hurriedly shoved the cookie pan in the freezer as a last ditch attempt to save whatever had happened. The dough was good at least, so I assumed that at least there would be something yummy to eat for the night, albeit not cookies.
After the first bite of this decadent treat, I was hooked. This new creation is amazing! I had no idea that this would be the final result, but I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. And I’m happy enough with it to share it with the world on my blog. So without further ado, here’s the recipe!
- 1 1/2 Cups Oat Flour
- 1/2 Amaranth Flour
- 1/2 Tsp Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
- 1 1/4 Tsp Stevia Powder
- 1 Tsp Baking Soda (not needed in the raw version)
- 1 Tsp Spirulina Powder (optional, but adds nutritional value)
- 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
- 5 Tsp Aquafaba
- 3/4 Cup Unmelted Coconut Oil
- 1/4 Cup Powdered Chocolate
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. I recommend mixing the dry ingredients first and then adding the wet ingredients.
- Raw Version:
- Roll the dough into balls and then flatten into disks. Thinner disks are better for this recipe, but thicker disks would be okay too. Try out both and see which one you like better!
- Place the disks on a cookie sheet and then put the sheet in the freezer for 30+ minutes. Serve frozen or chilled.
- "Melted" Version:
- Roll the dough into balls and place the balls onto a cookie sheet. Leave plenty of space between each one.
- Heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and "bake" the cookies. Watch them carefully.
- When the cookies have melted into disks, remove them carefully from the oven and put in the freezer for 1+ hours. Remove from the cookie sheet and serve chilled.
