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. Feel free to make them with Almond Butter if you prefer – I love this brand.

Today is National Peanut Butter day apparently. So here’s the perfect way to celebrate! The best, dreamiest, most delicious Peanut Butter Cookies. You are only one bowl and 20 minutes away from this perfection.

These Raspberry Chocolate Chunk Blondies,  also known as “Peanut Butter & Jam Blondies” are another perfect recipe to celebrate! Or, simply enjoy some peanut butter on toast. Or really, a straight up spoonful of peanut butter is arguably the purest way to celebrate!

  • Preheat oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with Silpat mat or parchment paper. Mix peanut butter, coconut sugar, and almond milk with a silicone spatula. Then, 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, and after ~2 minutes out of the oven, while the cookies are still warm, gently press down with your hands, or the bottom of a glass, 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!
