Solar Cooking Recipes: Peanut Butter Cookies

Solar cooker Vegetarian Peanut butter cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour (I use regular home ground flour)
  • 11/2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup non hydrogenated peanut butter, stirred well (Adams Natural etc.)
  • ¾ cup of liquid sweetener such as: agave nectar, fruit juice concentrate (apple) or corn syrup.
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract

Steps:

  • Set out Solar Oven to Pre heat, use solar reflector panels
  • Set out your dark (blackened) cookie sheet, no greasing.
  • Mix dry ingredients
  • Mix Peanut butter, sweetener, and vanilla
  • Combine the two and mix until soft dough forms.
  • Drop by teaspoon of dough for each cookie, roll dough into balls.
  • Using a fork dipped in water, press a criss-cross pattern while flattening to a 2" round
  • When solar oven has reached 300 F or higher, quickly place cookie sheet inside
  • Set timer for 20 minutes.

Each time you take out your cookies, close solar oven so as to regain the temperature while you are placing new dough on cookie sheet.

Result:

Cookies should firm up after cooling for two minutes. (It is possible to overcook your cookies to where they are dryer and crunchier, so don't go longer than 20 minutes.)

*This is a recipe I used for a solar class I did for our local chapter of the Vegetarian Society. The cookies were liked by all.
