Peanut Butter Apricot Cookies
Dry Ingredients3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon tahini
2 eggs (or equivalent egg sub. for vegan cookies)
1 cup dried apricot (cut into smaller chunks)
1/2 cup oats
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.Grease a cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper.
3.Whisk together dry ingredients.
4.Blend wet ingredients until as close to smooth as possible.
5.Mix dry ingredients with the wet mixture until fully incorporated. The batter will be thick and sticky, so it would probably be easiest to do this with a fork or mixing spoon.
6.Stir in the oats and apricots.
7.Form into balls and flatten onto parchment paper. Again, this is easier to do with wet hands.
8.Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the tops look golden (don't wait for them to brown or they will be too hard when they cool).
9.To store (and for transportation purposes), I like to wrap each cookie in plastic wrap. Voila! Bakery-style
