While we try to eat as nutritional as possible, everyone has a sweet tooth now and then.   Feel free to
share a favorite recipe if you have one.

A lot of the ingredients that we use can be substituted if you do not use things like Coconut or Almond
flour.  You could substitute regular or whole wheat flour.  The coconut oil in most cases can be
substituted for butter (we don’t really suggest using margarine but you could).

PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

This first recipe calls does not call for flour.  I add just a little almond or coconut flour to the recipe.  
Without any flour at all the cookies crumble easily.

We use as little sugar as possible in our cookies but they are not always necessarily low calorie as in
this first recipe.  The peanut butter, while being an excellent source of protein, and very good for you,
it is high in calories and fat, but gluten free.

What you’ll need:

Recipe makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies at 150 calories each.  With icing (recipe below) or a kiss on
top add about 25 calories. Remember these cookies call for very little sugar, 1/2 cup sugar is not a
misprint.  Try it this way before you are tempted to increase the sugar, I think you’ll love them.
•2 Cups Peanut Butter (all natural is recommended-crunchy or smooth)
•2 Eggs
•1/2 cup sugar (organic or brown)
•1/2 cup almond flour (can be substituted or omitted all together)
•2 tsp baking soda
•1 tsp pure vanilla extract
•1/4 tsp sea salt (optional)
Peanut Butter Cookies
An all time favorite!
Mix all ingredients together and roll into 1 inch balls (refrigerating for about an hour will stiffen the batter
and make it easier to roll into balls)
Place on baking sheet about 2 inches apart.  Mash down lightly making a crisscross with a fork.  If you are
going to put kisses on top now is the time before they go in the oven.  If you are going to icing them that will
be done after the cool slightly.

Bake 10-12 minutes.  Allow to cool slightly before removing from the pan
