My grandma used to make the best peanut butter cookies. THE BEST. This little adaptation of Grandma’s classic recipe doesn’t use sugar or butter or wheat flour; in fact, it only uses five simple ingredients: peanut butter, coconut flour, maple syrup, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Just throw everything into the food processor until it forms a smooth batter, roll it into balls and add the little fork flourish. Voila! Decadent little bites of peanut buttery goodness that seem baked (and totally time intensive), but they’re not at all.

  1. I made these with tehini and used 2 Tbsp maple syrup, and even a bit more, and they weren\’t very sweet. Also, I had to laugh at myself because I had the oven all heated up until I realized there was no baking involved. Maybe consider adding \’No-Bake\’ to the title because most of us won\’t read the small print back story of the recipe. We just want to make the cookies. Thanks! Nice and easy recipe – just the way I like it!

    1. Update: I baked them for about 6-7 minutes. Then they were cookies, but the tehini ratio was still a bit high. At least it\’s not tempting to eat too many of them.
