A no-bake peanut butter cookie is a that does not require baking in your oven. In fact, a no simply needs pantry ingredients to hold its shape. Therefore there is no baking required. However, a must be stored in the freezer or it gets way too soft. The good part is that you only need to remove them from the freezer 5 minutes from before eating. This gives them their perfect texture. So you can fix your cravings in a sec!
You only need 5 ingredients to make no- without . However, you must be very careful when choosing each ingredient perfectly to make sure your cookies are keto-friendly. Let us see what you need:
These are soft . It means that you should expect a very soft, melt-in-your-mouth cookie and not a crunchy cookie. In fact, all no cookies are softer in texture since they don’t use eggs and oven to crisp flours together. So to make the best you need to follow 5 simple steps.
The first thing to do is to open a fresh jar of with no added and no added oil. In fact, if you are using an old jar that is dry with no oil on top, your no cookies would turn out super dry and wouldn’t form. Place the into a large mixing bowl.
Since your is fresh and runny you don’t need to warm it up, it will combine very well with your flours and . Next step, measure carefully your flours and , filling measuring cups up to the top. No packing of flours and leveling up the top to make sure you don’t add unneeded It would result in a very dry . Finally, pour the measured , flaxseed meal and coconut into the bowl with , and combine with a spoon.
The ball. Also, note that the must be soft, shiny as it comes together. It shouldn’t be dry or difficult to put together. If so, it means you added too much fiber (too much flour) or the you used contains additive or it is dry. To troubleshoot this, add 1 or 2 teaspoon of , combine between each addition until a soft shiny ball forms. will dry out as you go and it might be easier to knead with your hands in order to shape a
Now that you have prepared the , shape 17 small balls with your hands, rolling each ball between your hand palms. Next, cover a plate with parchment paper and place each ball on the plate, leaving 1 thumb space between each ball. Finally, oil a fork and press the balls with the back of fork, twice, to shape a cross on top of each ball. You will end up with 17 no .
You must freeze your no for at least 20 minutes or until firm and hard. In fact, if they are too soft, you won’t be able to dip the cookies.
Do not skip this step as the shell is what holds the cookie together especially if you intend to store them in the fridge. In fact, these are ultra soft cookies and they need a hard shell to stay round and beautiful. Of course, you have two options, you can fully dip the cookies into or only the bottom and half side as seen on my pictures.
These no- should be stored in the freezer, in an airtight box for the best texture. In order to avoid a change in color, wrap them individually. This no-bake doesn’t use that usually hardens no bake cookies at room temperature (below 23C). Therefore, these no-bake peanut butter cookies get very soft if stored in the fridge, like kids playdoh. It doesn’t mean they can’t be stored in the fridge, but expect a very soft texture if you do. However, to have a crunchy, melt-in-your-mouth keto cookie, I recommend freezing the cookies and taking them out of the freezer 5-10 minutes at room temperature. Then, enjoy the most delicious !
