Solar Cooked Peanut Butter Cookies

Solar Cooked Peanut Butter Cookies

So, in honor of my cookie binge, I tried to make bar cookies out of peanut butter cookies in the solar oven yesterday. Peanut butter cookies are so fatty and easy, and for awhile they used to be my go-to cookie for when people stopped over. Everyone ate them, and I could have a batch ready in under a half hour.

I got out my recipe book and started cooking, and all I could think about was turning the recipe into peanut butter blossoms. However, I didn’t have any hershey kisses at home, so I had to just make plain bar cookies.

GF/Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup vegan butter
1 flax egg (1 Tbsp flax plus 3 Tbsp water)
1 1/4 cups rice flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder

Mix the ingredients well and then spread into a parchment-lined baking pan. Bake in a preheated solar oven until done. Mine took about 45 minutes.

Overall, they turned out okay, but they were quite crumbly. I wonder if it’s the vegan butter? I would still make these again, but I would try putting the chocolate kisses in at the end to spice them up.

The downside to all this cookie baking is that we are all eating cookies at my house more often then we probably should. We have already finished off the peanut butter cookies as well as the oatmeal ones from yesterday. Maybe I should try healthy granola bars next or something?

Rating: okay. Crumbly, but my kids loved them :)
