Lately I’ve been slightly obsessed with peanut butter. Whether crunchy or smooth (I have my favourite in each an every situation), peanut butter is something I eat nearly every day. May it be in a satay sauce, in a smoothie or on it’s own as an afternoon snack, peanut butter works in a lot of meals. And it works incredibly well in cookies too! Which is what we’re here for today. Peanut Butter Choc Chip Cookies.
These Peanut Butter Choc Chip Cookies are sweet and delicious while still being on the on the healthier side of the dessert spectrum. When you bite into the cookies you’ll be able to taste delicious peanut butter, chocolate and banana. The texture will be different to most cookies as we’re using coconut flour. It’s a soft cookie that doesn’t crumble like crazy but it’s also a cookie that you can break into pieces very easily.
I find that coconut flour can make baked goods extremely dry if used the wrong way, so it’s important to always use enough liquid when using coconut flour. In this recipe, I think I’ve nailed the ratio of coconut flour to liquid and these cookies have for sure become one of my go-to’s. They only contain a small amount of ingredients and are really easy and quick to make too.
