hambified peanut butter oatmeal cookies

I found this Taste of Home recipe a while back, and modified it to meet the Hamby House nutritional standards.  We eat them for breakfast, snacks, dessert, and yes, once we even ate them for dinner with a big glass of raw milk.  They can be made and ready to eat within 20 minutes!  You can find the original recipe here.

*Mix together:

1/2 cup of natural peanut butter (crunchy is best!)

1/2 cup of either raw honey or maple syrup

1 farm fresh egg

*Stir until smooth.

*In the blender, grind 3/4 cup of organic oats until it is mostly fine, like flour.

*Mix in:

3/4 cup of ground oats

3/4 cup of whole oats (not ground)

1/2 cup of almond flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

dash of sea salt

1/2 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)

(You could also add 1/2 cup of chopped dark chocolate bits… this is delicious, but Myles doesn’t care for chocolate so I usually leave them out unless I am feeling particularly selfish!)

*Drop by spoonfuls onto a GREASED cookie sheet.  I grease with butter or coconut oil.

*Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 F.  A little less if you like them gooier and chewier, a little more if you like them crispier.

*Makes a dozen medium-sized cookies.  In our house, a batch usually lasts less than 12 hours.
