Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Patties! AKA TAGALONGS :)

I totally meant to post these back when it was Girl Scout cookie season…but clearly it is now many months past that.

Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Patties! AKA TAGALONGS :)

You can thank my stupid school taking over my life (my go-to excuse).

Anyway, these cookies are as phenomenal as they look. These are everything you love about peanut butter patties but way better! Everything is better when it’s homemade and healthy. This I know.

Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Patties

Soft cinnamon cookie base
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
3 T + 2 tsp brown sugar or coconut sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 T melted coconut oil
1-2 T milk of choice (start with 1 tbsp)

Blend everything except coconut oil & milk in a food processor or high powered blender, until finely ground.
Pulse in the oil and milk until incorporated.
Shape into 8 balls and place evenly spaced on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat. Flatten the dough to make the base of the cookie in the shape you want – it will barely spread while baking.
Bake 13-15 min at 325 F, and let cool on the sheet for them to crisp up.

Peanut butter filling
1/2 cup peanut flour (I used ProteinPlus)
3 T unsweetened almond milk
2 T brown sugar or coconut sugar

Stir together until combined.

*Alternatively, you can use a heaping 1/2 cup of regular peanut butter + 2T powdered sugar (or try sweetening it with a natural sweetener like honey or coconut sugar and let me know how it goes)

Chocolate
1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate
1/2 T coconut oil

Melt together until smooth.

Assemble: Divide the peanut butter filling among the cookies. Use a spoon to drizzle the melted chocolate on top!
