Ingredients
 

  • 1/2 cup all-natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 + 1/2 cups superfine almond flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt, only if using unsalted peanut butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a stand mixer or handheld electric mixer, beat the peanut butter, softened butter, and coconut sugar on medium-high. Should take about 1 minute.
  • Scrape the sides with a spatula and add in the egg and vanilla extract. Beat on medium-low until just combined, for about 20 seconds.
  • Add in almond flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix on medium-low until just combined.
  • Using a cookie scooper or your hand, roll dough into 16 - 18 equal-sized balls (2 Tablespoons of dough for each). Make sure to evenly space them out.
  • Gently press the cookies into a patty shape by using a fork to create a crisscross pattern on the tops of each cookie. Don’t flatten them too much.
  • Bake 9 - 12 minutes until light golden brown. They will finish cooking on the baking sheet as they cool, so don’t worry if they look a little pale.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, transfer to a wire rack, and enjoy!

Notes

Coconut Sugar: Can substitute with 1/2 cup of light brown sugar.
Do NOT use almond meal.
