St. Patrick's Day Sunbutter Oatmeal Cookies
When I was growing up we always celebrated St. Patrick's Day with corned beef and cabbage. I still really enjoy the taste of it, and look forward to it. This year I'm not making corned beef, but I wanted to make something green for my son to enjoy. I accidentally turned some oatmeal cookies green back in the fall. There is a chemical reaction that occurs because of the chlorophyl in the sunbutter when it is mixed with baking soda! Unfortunately my son refuses to eat the cookies because they are green! They taste very similar to a soft oatmeal cookie with the addition of the nutty taste of the sunbutter, such a great texture! You can add chocolate chips or raisins if you would like.
1 cup gluten free oats
1/2 cup sunbutter ( you can use any other type of seed/nut butter but they won't turn green)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
optional ( 1/2 cup chocolate chips or raisins)
1) Pre-heat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2) In a large bowl crack the egg and beat wel.l
3) Stir in the sunbutter, maple syrup, salt, baking soda, oats, and optional add ins, stir until fully incorporated.
4) Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the batter onto the pan it should make 13-15 cookies
5) Bake cookies for 13 minutes (they will not look green on the outside)
Keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
