If you’re paleo, I bet you miss the taste of peanut butter. Since legumes are a no-no on paleo, this “peanut butter” cookie is the next best thing…
I know, I’m kinda on a cookie kick right now. That’s because it’s the holidays and I’ve had a lot of requests for paleo-friendly treats.
And let’s face it, if you’re going to a holiday party, why not bring a treat you can share with others and enjoy yourself too?
Peanut butter has always been a favorite in our house – my boys love it with just about everything.
So I decided to whip up a “peanut butter” chocolate chip cookie – minus the peanut butter. It’s all paleo, gluten and dairy-free except for the chocolate chips. We used the Enjoy Life brand which are soy-free and dairy-free so I give them a pass.
The secret to this one is the sunflower seed butter. I think it tastes the most like peanut butter. You can find it almost anywhere, but feel free to use almond butter instead. I also used ghee in this recipe, but you can sub that out for pasture-raised butter if you prefer.
These “peanut butter” cookies are awesome! The first time I made them they were good, but for the next batch I added a little more sunflower butter which gave them an even more peanut-buttery taste.
I’m pretty sure your little peanuts will be happy to inhale these treasures hot out of the oven!
Make a batch and find out for yourself!
