Basically, I found myself with a bag of peanut flour and not a clue how to use it.

This cookie recipe was on the side of the bag. After modifying it to make a smaller batch and to use coconut sugar as a more natural sweetener, I definitely think it’s a recipe worth coming back to again and again. It’s still the only use I’ve found for the peanut flour, but I’m not too mad about it.

Flourless Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 + 1/8 cup coconut sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup peanut flour*
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 cup chopped roasted peanuts
1/4 cup raisins or chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium bowl, beat together the peanut butter and sugar until combined. Beat in the egg, mixing well. Mix in the remainder of the ingredients.

Shape into rounded tablespoon-fulls. Use a fork to make criss-cross marks on the tops, which also slightly flattens them.

Bake 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are just set. Let cool and enjoy!

* I love this brand of peanut flour
