    1 cup oat flour
    tsp baking powder
    tsp baking soda
    tsp salt
    cup non-hydrogenated shortening
    cup sugar
    cup cup-for-cup stevia (I used Pyure)

    cup crunchy peanut butter
    cup chopped peanuts

Tips

Adapted from wearychef.com/2013/06/24/ricotta-cookies-with-nutella-swirl/

*If baking within a day or two, wrap the logs in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 12 hours, up to 48.


Directions

In a bowl, beat together coconut oil, sugar and Pyure together until light.
Add egg replacer, vanilla and ricotta, beating smooth.
Stir in flour mixture until combined.
Roll half the dough between two sheets of waxed paper into a rectangle about ⅛ thick.
Mix the chocolate hazelnut spread, peanut butter and peanuts together and evenly spread half the mix over the cookie dough, leaving a 1 border on one long side.
Starting with the long side with the filling, carefully roll the dough into a cylinder. Roll in the waxed paper and then in foil*, place on a baking sheet and freeze until needed. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
After dough has chilled, remove it from the plastic wrap and slice into thick cookies. Place 1″ apart on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or silicone mats.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
Carefully transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool before enjoying.
