(WTNH) – Craving a sweet treat but want to keep it easy, quick, and as healthy as possible?

Holistic health and wellness coach, April Godfrey shares a five-ingredient recipe for Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip cookies. The cookies are plant-based and protein-packed. They are also gluten-free and dairy-free.

The recipe is below:

  • 3/4 cup garbanzo bean flour (you can also use almond flour)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2-3 Tbsp mini vegan chocolate chips
  • ~Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  • ~Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.
  • ~Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
  • ~Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • ~Roll cookie dough into (slightly smaller than) golf ball sized balls and place on the cookie sheet in rows.
  • ~Use a fork to press that classic peanut butter cross pattern into the cookies. (If the fork sticks you can just moisten it with some water to solve that little problem!)
  • ~Place in  oven for 10 minutes, let cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
