Peanut butter muddy puddle cookies

Since having baby H I’ve been introduced to the wonderful world of Peppa Pig, which I’m not going to lie, I do kind of like. But our house seems to be slowly turning into something akin to a shrine to all things Peppa, which I’m not quite so down with. But that’s just part and parcel of having a little one I guess, so I’ll take it!Now for all you Peppa novices, said pig enjoys nothing more than jumping in muddy puddles. Much like baby H, unfortunately for me. Every time we go out for a walk and it’s been raining, she always ends up ‘jumping’ (she can’t jump yet although she thinks she can) and then usually sitting in the puddles. My washing machine has never seemed like such a good investment.

Sometimes though it’s too rainy to walk outside, so we stay inside and pretend we’re jumping in muddy puddles indoors instead. And I bake us these muddy puddle cookies, just to make sure I’ve got enough washing to do (they’re a little messy if you’re a toddler). They’re a homage to our fun times splish sploshing around in puddles both real and imaginary and they taste totally heavenly.

Just 6 ingredients and super easy too, they’ve got a peanutty cookie base filled with the most delicious peanutty chocolatey fudgey dollop of deliciousness in the middle. You can’t get much better than that in my book!

Makes around 10 cookies

Ingredients

For the cookies

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup peanut flour
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

For the chocolate puddles

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt

Pop the oats in a food processor for about a minute until they are ground into a flour, then put this in a bowl with the peanut flour and salt and stir well. Then add in the maple and peanut butter and mix with your hands until it forms a dough. Shape it into 10 balls and then make them into patties and make a little crater in the middle. Bake at 180C for 10 minutes and then leave to cool.

For the filling, melt the coconut oil and pop it in a bowl with the other ingredients and stir well. Then use a teaspoon to dollop the mixture into the middle of each cookie and voila!

Love, Mrs H xx
