Grain-Free Minimalist Peanut (Almond) Butter Cookies (Recipe)

I wanted to quickly share the recipe for these super-easy cookies with you. I know something is good, when I have to make a second batch within the week. The great thing about these cookies is that they have minimal ingredients that can be made in a very short amount of time – awesome, right? Oh, and my husband is an absolute almond butter fanatic so I definitely won some points with him!! So, for all you peanut free peeps out there, this can totally be made with almond butter.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of natural or organic peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1 organic egg
  • Sea salt (optional as your peanut butter may already contain some. If not, add a pinch to the mix)

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all the ingredients into a bowl until everything is incorporated. I put my mix into the fridge for about 20 minutes to help with the next step.
  3. Roll about tablespoon size balls of this and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  4. Take the palm of your hand and lightly press the balls to a “cookie” shape.
  5. Pop in the oven for about 12-15 minutes. Just watch as they can burn easily due to the fat content in the PB.
  6. Cool and store it in the fridge or even freezer!
