Servings: 35

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. In mixer, cream peanut butter and sugar. Add everything else and mix until well combined.

3. With your hands, roll the mixture into little balls (they stay together better if you keep them small)and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. You could roll them in additional sugar.

4. Bake for about 10 minutes. Cookies should still be soft when you take them out of the oven. Let them sit for a few minutes before you take them off the baking sheet.

Are you sure that the ingredient list is complete? With those proportions of wet to dry ingredients, I can't imagine being able to roll that into balls. (Maybe you forgot to type "coconut flour'"?)

Nope, didn't forget to type coconut flour-- there isn't any. You will be able to roll it into balls-- try it and see!

That's what i thought as well, there has got to be some more
dry ingredients.
BTW can one use almond butter instead?

I've made peanutbutter cookie recipes like this before. It does work without any flour.
Any nut or seed butter should work fine. We used sunbutter and they turned out delicious.

This recipe is delicious. Thank you for sharing. I am gluten intolarance so whenever I come across a good recipe I make sure to save it. I know some of you are questioning if there is an ingredient missing but the truth is most gluten free recipes do not include flour. In some instances it will include rice flour but not in this case. :) Thank you everyone and have a great weekend.

The peanut butter cookies look soooo good. I am going try them, as I am sensitive to wheat. I just found this website, and my daughter has introduced me to coconut products...they are so yummy!

That's 2/3 CUP of sugar. I also rolled these in sugar and rolled in 1 or 2 dark chocolate chips before pressing down slightly with a fork in a criss-cross pattern. When I didn't press them down, they just stayed in little balls & didn't look like cookies. I used half almond butter & half cashew butter (just ground up cashews in a food processor). These are excellent!!

How long do they keep? Would it be possible to make them into bars?

Making these today for a long car trip w/ kids. My family uses a similar recipe handed down from my great-grandma. It's just PB, sugar, eggs and vanilla and it always turns out so good! Can't wait to try the addition of coconut.

I can't have sugar, has anyone made these with stevia substitute? I am finding it hard to come up with recipes that are gluten, soy, rice and dairy free...

The recipe works great! I enjoyed them. I will dip in chocolate next time. Yummy

I plan on trying this recipe with Swerve Sweetener instead of sugar. I will post how they turned out.
