Peanut Butter Cookies

peanut butter cookies

These are seriously the world's BEST peanut butter cookies. These are best made when you are on maintenance mode and don't mind asserting some self control (something I am not good at). But they make a yummy little 'better for you' treat that the entire family can enjoy in moderation. 


  • 1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp applesauce
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp spelt flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup organic coconut cane sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt 


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Double this recipe as they will disappear quick.
  2. Combine all the wet ingredients in a bowl (peanut butter, applesauce, vanilla) and mix well.
  3. Combine all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl (flour, baking soda, coconut cane sugar, salt) and mix well.
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well. Create cookie size balls and place on a greased baking sheet.
  5. Place in fridge for 1 hour. Cooling the dough is critical for soft chewy cookies.
  6. Cook for 8 min and remove from oven. Cookies may appear undercooked but don’t worry, they are ready. Cool and enjoy!
