HEALTHIEST PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES RECIPE
YIELDS: 10 MINI COOKIES
TIME: 15 MINUTES (5 MINUTES PREP & 10 MINUTES BAKING)
2 TBSP Peanut Butter
2 TBSP Coconut Flour (Bob's Red Mill)
3 TBSP Almond Milk
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/8 tsp Baking Soda
sweetener of choice: 1 packet of Stevia/Truvia or honey to taste (about 1 TBSP)
Preheat oven to 350F.
Place peanut butter and 1 TBSP almond milk in microwave safe mug or dish and heat until melted, about 20-30 seconds.
Add coconut flour, baking soda, vanilla extract, salt, and sweetener. Mix well.
Add remaining almond milk to the peanut butter mixture one Tablespoon at a time.
Depending on the brand peanut butter used, you may need to add a little more or a little less almond milk to get the right, dough consistency. The dough should be not too moist that it sticks to your fingers and not too dry that it crumbles apart. You should easily be able to roll the dough into little balls.
Divide dough and roll into little balls (you should get 10-12 mini balls).
Arrange balls on parchment paper lined bake sheet and create criss-cross fork pattern on top (see pictures below).
Bake at 350F 8-10 minutes.
Let cookies cool before handling or else they'll crumble apart.
