Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies with Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Morsels

The lovely people at Enjoy Life sent me a bag of their dark chocolate Morsels. I have one word for them – DELICIOUS! I had to stop myself from eating the bag. Yes, they are fantastic just on their own. I love dark chocolate and these are just right.

I used a fantastic Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe from The Gluten Free Vegan. This recipe is supposed to make 20 cookies, I made 15 because I really packed those babies. I used my hands to form them into cookie patties. I usually use an ice cream scoop, but today I felt like using my hands for some reason.

I’ve made this recipe about five times now and things I’ve learnt:
1. Do not use coconut oil – it doesn’t soften the cookie whatsoever, it makes them dry and kinda not to great
2. Use more chocolate chips than recommended, it’s a personal preference
3. You can use home made apple sauce, works fine too
4. Do not use rice sweetener, for some reason maple syrup really works, the rice sweetener does not

Oh, they are delicious! I love, love, love the texture and they’re not too crunchy. Excellent recipe that you can’t mess up. Unless you use coconut oil.

Happy eating!
