I finally got around to making one of my favorite childhood desserts and they do not disappoint.
PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES!
Um… YES, please!
My favorite thing about peanut butter cookies is how simple yet delicious they are.
Made with wholesome ingredients these cookies will satisfy every peanut butter craving you’ve ever had.
Soft, sweet, and salty. These cookies really are perfect!
All you’ll need is a glass of milk to go with them (almond for me, please)!
Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 1/4 c all natural creamy peanut butter
- 1 flax egg
- 1/3 c agave
- 2 tsp pure vanilla
- 3 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
How to make…
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Step 2: In a large bowl mix together the flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seed + 2 tbsp water) let sit in the fridge for 5-8 minutes. Then in another small bowl combine the coconut flour, and baking powder, set aside.
Step 3: Take out the bowl from the refrigerator you made the flax egg in and combine all the other wet ingredients. This includes the peanut butter, agave, coconut oil, and vanilla.
Step 4: Slowly fold the dry mixture into the wet mixture until completely combined. The dough will still be sticky, that’s what you want.
Step 5: Roll the dough into cookie sized balls placing them about an inch away from each other on the baking sheet.
Step 6: Sprinkle each cookie with coconut sugar.
Step 7: Press each cookie down with a fork first vertically and then horizontally.
Step 8: Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown.
Step 9: Let sit and cool completely before eating. Store cookies in an airtight container.
