To-Die-For Peanut Butter (Flour-less) Cookies.
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies (Flour-less)
Yield: about 6Â½ dozen
1Â½ cup peanut butter (I prefer Adamâ€™s Natural brand so there are no hydrogenated oils)
Â½ cup butter, softened
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Â¾ teaspoon corn syrup
4Â½ cups quick-cooking oats
Â¾ cup (6 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 Tablespoon ground flax and sesame seed (optional)
1/2Â cupÂ cooked barley(optional)
In a large mixing bowl, cream the peanut butter, butter, and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Beat in baking soda, vanilla, and corn syrup. Stir in oats, chips, and toffee bits. Dough will be sticky.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350ÂºF for 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned. (For best results, only bake 1 sheet at a time on the middle rack.)
Cool cookies on baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to wire racks. Freeze cookies up to 3 months. You can also freeze extra cookie dough by rolling it into a log and wrapping in plastic wrap. Label dough â€œ350ÂºF for 11-13 minutesâ€ and freeze. Defrost for 10 seconds in the microwave on high. Shape dough just as directed above, then bake and serve.
In this picture you can see I have mixed flax and sesame seeds (the darker the better) in this cup to blend in my magic bullet.Â This is the amount I use in a week.Â I sprinkle it on everything we eat and I store it in the refrigerator when I’m not using it.Â I mix it in breads, cookies, waffles,Â sprinkle in cheese tortillas, on peanut butter sandwiches, everything!Â It has made a major difference in keeping us healthy this winter.Â Â Â We haven’t had the flu at all this year, and colds last only a day or two instead of weeks.Â I’ve also been studying foot zoning to combine with our healthy eating and it has really helped us stay healthy.
As far as vitamins go, I have my family take vitamin D, (10,000 IUs) during the winter.Â I found a tiny vitamin D soft gell at Sam’s club.Â Every member of my family has one a day (ages 4,6,8, and my husband and I) along with their other vitamins.Â We all take fish oil (Nordic Naturals chewable omega-3sfor kids,) a multi-vitamin, the kids take fluoride, and an extra boost of vitamin C.Â Â I buy a chewable vitamin D for my 2 year old.Â She does not like the taste of the soft gel vitamin D that everyone else is taking.
