Holiday Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes 24 cookies.

These peanut butter cookies are gluten free and taste a lot like traditional peanut butter cookies. They can be made festive with a little chocolate or served plain. Another option is to top them with chopped peanuts dipped in maple syrup.

1 cup unsweetened, natural peanut butter (the runnier the better)
1/3 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons coconut flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
½ of a 100 g dark chocolate bar (or about 2 ounces chocolate)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line 2 cookie sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the peanut butter, maple syrup, non-dairy milk, vanilla, and salt.
  4. In a small bowl or measuring cup, stir the coconut flour and cornstarch together.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture gradually, stirring to combine thoroughly.
  6. Form the dough into 24 balls. Place 12 balls on each cookie sheet.
  7. Use a fork dipped in water to flatten each cookie.
  8. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Cool for about 20-30 minutes.
  • Melt the chocolate in a small saucepan over very low heat – be careful not to burn it. Stir.
  • Pour the melted chocolate onto half of each cookie. Return to cookie sheet until the chocolate sets. Cookies freeze well.
