Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies
These cookies are perfect when you want something sweet (not too sweet) and satiating! Always curbs my sweet tooth 🙂
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 1 dozen
- 1 pasture-raised egg
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup organic peanut butter (no added sugar)
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- flakey sea salt (to top)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Whisk together the egg, maple syrup, melted and cooled coconut oil, vanilla extract, and peanut butter.
Fold in the remaining ingredients, pressing down any clumps of almond flour until smooth.
Use a cookie scoop (or two spoons) and drop on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Use a fork to press down the dough, then turn the fork 90-degrees and press down again. Sprinkle flakey salt over the cookies.
Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown.
Cool for 10 minutes, then enjoy!
Love all you do but just a quick request since I’m a clean eating girl with a dirty food mind😉Could you please develop some more desserts & treats that are not solely based on nut butters (and chocolate)..? Need some cookies, cakes, etc, retro-style, so I’m not seduced into jumping the counter at a local boutique bakery because I’m dying for a nostalgic sweet treat! Cut out cookies, sugar cookies, biscotti, even birthday cake, etc- you know the deal from when we were growing up! Whole sleeves of Pepperidge Farms cookies and Entenmann’s everythingggggg. And I’m with you 💯 btw, summertime gas station ice cream treats WERE IT growing up!!🍦😋
I’m addicted!…however only got 5 or 6 cookies out of one batch. Used Maranatha (organic peanuts & salt only) but mine were a touch dry and crumbly- not that it stopped me from devouring them all or anything;) Any clues on what I may be doing wrong? I flattened the dough with my hands too, as a cookie scoop and pressing down with a fork didn’t seem to do it. Just checking out your pictures and yours look perfect so thought I’d ask!
