Not an exaggeration.
Full disclosure: These are really just my Paleo Salted Almond Butter Cookies, with peanut butter instead of almond butter. BUT, they have quite a different taste and texture, and everyone seems to love the PB version on Instagram, so I thought these deserved a page of their own.
And it’s National peanut Butter day apparently. So here’s the perfect way to celebrate!
Just look at that cookie and tell me you don’t want to reach through the screen and grab it! I know you do. If you are a cookie monster like me, you should definitely check out the Paleo Almond Butter cookies, these Tahini Cinnamon Chocolate Chunk Cookies I just posted, or these super healthy and delicious cookies made with BEETS!
If you’re not in the mood for cookies of any kind, I would still browse all the recipe on The Granola Diaries – there are tons of great and nutritious recipes, for all cravings!
Ok, even shameless plugging, here’s what you came for:
The Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever
By The Granola Diaries
- 1 C creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 C Coconut Sugar
- 1/4 C Almond Milk
- 2 – 3 Tbsp Coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- Sea salt (if your PB isn’t salted)
Preheat oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with Silpat mat or parchment paper. Mix almond butter, coconut sugar, and almond milk with a silicone spatula. Add in 2T coconut flour, baking soda, and a dash of salt and mix until all combined. Mixture will be quite sticky. If seems TOO sticky, add the 3rd Tbsp of coconut flour.
Use a spoon and the silicone spatula to scoop into rounds on the baking sheet, lightly shape with your fingers. Top with a generous dash of sea salt flakes if desired, and bake for 12 – 14 minutes. Remove, after ~2 minutes out of the oven, while the cookies are still warm, gently press down with your hands to flatten the cookies to desired shape. Top with even more sea salt if desired and a PB drizzle! Now, LET COOL COMPLETELY for cookies to firm up (That’s the hardest step!) Don’t forget to tag me and use #thegranoladiaries in your posts!
