Flourless Peanut Butter Alligators

12 Nov

Alligators are awesome, as demonstrated in this video. *pauses to watch video 10x*

ANYWAY, peanut butter. also awesome. Put them together, and you get A.W.E.S.O.M.E. I know my recipient was very pleased with these alligators, despite them flying across the ocean and arriving only 7 days later. But if yours don’t require travelling, then I’m not sure if you’ll have any left at the end of a week. The recipe doesn’t make many cookies, so double the recipe if you must and buy the largest jar of peanut butter on the shelf. Then you can make yourself triple batches. and share.

Flourless Peanut Butter Alligators
via Have Cake Will Travel

1 cup (256 g) crunchy peanut butter, or any nut butter
1/4 cup (84 g) light agave nectar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 egg replacers
1/4 cup (48 g) raw castor sugar

Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C, or gas mark 2). Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, such as Silpat.
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, and stir well for about a minute.
Divide dough in about 1/4 cup (66 g) portions, to get 6 cookies of equal size. Flatten with your hand almost as much as you want your cookies, as these won’t spread much while baking. or squish them flat and cut out with cookie cutter.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges. If your cookies are puffy on top, use a spoon and tap gently to flatten them.
Let cool on baking sheet until firm enough to transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.
