Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipe from Deliciously Ella.

We all know that peanut butter is a much-loved household staple. We love it as a sandwich spread or even as a dip with some freshly cut apples (ah, the sweet and salty combo - yum!), but have you ever used it to make cookies?

The Proof is in the Peanut

As well as being delicious, peanuts also have a stack of health benefits. Peanuts are low in saturated fats, free from cholesterol and gluten, and are also a low GI food. As well as being a fabulous source of fibre and healthy fats, peanuts also have the highest protein content of any nut.

So, now that you're convinced that peanut butter cookies are a good choice, let's get to the recipe!

Fresh is Best: Make Your Own Peanut Butter


First, you'll need to make your peanut butter in your NutraMilk. For this, you'll need:

  • 2 cups (275g) of peanuts

  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt (optional)


  1. Add your peanuts and salt to the NutraMilk container.

  2. Press Butter, and set for 2-3 minutes.

  3. Press Start.

  4. For an even creamier butter, mix for another 1-2 minutes.

Cookie time!


For the cookies, you'll need:

  • 150g porridge oats

  • 100g peanut butter

  • 35g brown rice flour

  • 50ml maple syrup

  • 60g coconut oil, melted

  • 50g coconut sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 190*C and line a baking try with baking paper.

  2. Place all of the cookie ingredients into the NutraMilk container and press Mix (do not change the default time).

  3. Use a large spoon to scoop out the cookie dough and shape into balls on the baking tray. Press down lightly to form a cookie shape.

  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.

  5. Enjoy! (After cooling - nobody likes a burnt tongue)
