Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

One of the things I love about the holiday season is that I finally have the time to get into my kitchen and bake up a storm! Every time the season rolls around I will make & bake at least a dozen different types of holiday cookies!

Today I’m sharing a recipe with all of you courtesy of Coco Joy that I think you’re going to love!

Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

¼ cup Coco Joy Coconut Oil
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup Desiccated Coconut Flakes
2 tbsp. Brown Rice Flour
1 ½ cup Peanut Butter
1 tbsp. Coco Joy Coconut Milk
¼ tsp. Sea Salt
100g Dark Chocolate, cut into chunks
¾ cup Sugar

Preheat oven to 320 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a baking sheet with baking paper.

Combine Coco Joy Coconut Oil and coconut in a small frying pan over medium heat.

Cook, stirring often, until coconut is light golden brown. Set aside to cool for at least 10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter, white sugar, coconut sugar, eggs, Coco Joy Coconut Milk, brown rice flour, and salt; stir until completely combined. Add coconut mixture, mix well.

Drop by tablespoon onto prepared baking sheet. Press a chunk of chocolate onto each cookie. Bake until cookies are golden on the bottom, 10-14 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

    I like how this recipe is different from the usual peanut butter cookie by its use of coconut oil,milk and sugar as well as the brown rice flour. It is a more natural and healthy version.

    This is a different recipe for me. I’ve never used some of the ingredients, but the cookies look good & I’d be willing to give it a try. I do love peanut butter!

    • I love Peanut Butter too Tamra! I’m allergic to tree nuts but I can have all of the peanuts that I want!

  3. Yum! These cookies look delicious. Any time dark chocolate is involved I am definitely interested. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  4. This looks very different with the coconut oil and coconut flakes. My grandkids love coconut flavor so I have a feeling that they would enjoy these as I would. Like the addition of the dark chocolate in the middle – makes it looks so festive.

  6. peanut butter cookies with the chocolate in the middle are my second favorite cookie (behind choc. chip cookies, of course) and these look like a step up from the ones i usually make, so i’ll save this recipe. thanks
