SFG Diary peanut butter cookies

Dear Diary,

My stomach hurts, and sadly there’s no one to blame but myself… LOL… that’s what happens when I decide to eat my entire batch of peanut butter cookies in one day.  It started out innocently enough, I was experimenting with which dessert recipe to make for thanksgiving when I decided that these “Thanksgiving” 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies were the way to go!  They are simple and healthy while still feeling festive and indulgent.  Now I don’t recommend you follow my example and eat the whole batch in one sitting, but at least if you do, you can feel good about knowing that they’re non-processed, delicious and easy to make– so just make yourself another batch and enjoy! :)

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED/DO

Line a cookie sheet pan with non-stick parchment paper

In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of peanut butter with two eggs

Once completely mixed,  place individual peanut butter cookie scoops on the parchment (use an ice cream scooper so that they cook evenly)

press down on each cookie ball with a fork to create a leaner shape and interesting texture

cook in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes

While the cookies cool, combine 1 cup of dark chocolate with 1/2 cup of almond milk or half and half

place in a microwave safe bowl and heat for about 30 seconds

gently mix together until it is shiny and smooth (about 5 minutes), and add more liquid if needed

Lastly, place the chocolate ganache in a ziplock bag and cut one of the corner tips

then squeeze the bag (like a pastry bag), squirting out a thin line of chocolate sauce to coat the top of the cookies

lastly add your favorite festive toppings!  Sprinkles, crushed oreos, graham crackers… you like it, I love it! ;)
