I recently came across caramel chocolate chips, and HAD to try them! I am a big caramel fan, and as I was making this recipe just found myself reaching for the peanut butter and chocolate flavours to add to the mixture and wow wow wow! The result was truly incredible! It’s a similar take on my fudge double chocolate chip cookies that everone always loves, but with the added flavours of caramel and peanut butter. These peanut butter caramel chocolate chip cookies are a MUST if you’re a caramel fan like me!

If you know me personally- or have my You Can Beat Your Cravings Guide, you know that I very seldom do more than one bowl recipes! This is because I am actually a really messy person and hate cleaning up!

As a kid, my dad would always clean up after me and i developed this terrible habit of being as messy as possible!

Now that I’m all grown up and live with my dear Mik, there is no daddy here coming and running after me cleaning up (haha!)

Making my recipes one-bowl helps keep mess to a minimum. But they are also ideal because when I first started my recipe blog, it was from my tiny dorm room and I was still in college.

So just like all my other recipes: this one-bowl simple recipe that only requires you throw in all your ingredients and mix them was born! It was fantastic cleaning the bowl and not having to clean the whole kitchen!

Store cookies in an airtight container! To make it last longer, you can store it in the fridge and heat it up for 15-20 seconds in the microwave to have a warm gooey cookie.

How Do You Make Fudgy Brownie Cookies? 

                                                                               Ingredients:

Oat flour: I make my own by blending oats in a high speed blender to make a flour consistency.

Cocoa powder: Adds to the delicious chocolate consistency

Granulated sweetener of choice: I used a calorie free monk fruit sweetener, but any granulated sugar could work.

Baking soda: For a light fluffy texture

Peanut butter: You can substitute this for any nut or seed butter of choice

Egg: Can be replaced with a flax or chia egg if vegan

Caramel extract: You can subs this with vanilla if you don’t have caramel

Apple Sauce or yoghurt: To give it that extra fudgy texture!
