  • Place the peanut butter and agave syrup in a large bowl
  • Place over a pan of boiling water until just melted, or in the microwave for around 20 seconds until just melted - make sure not to overheat it
  • Add the oats, ground almonds and cocoa powder and mix well
  • Lay out a sheet of baking paper (on a baking tray might be easier) and use a cookie scoop or a spoon to scoop a heaped tablespoon of the mixture onto the baking paper
  • Use a fork or the back of a large spoon to flatten down the cookie into a circular patty
  • Repeat until you use up the rest of the mixture - you should be able to make around 9 cookies
  • Place in the fridge for at least one hour to firm up
  • Keeps in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a few days, or in the freezer for up to one month - defrost for at least 30 minutes before eating


*I wouldn't recommend using maple syrup as it's too liquidy
**You can alternatively useĀ almond flour
