If there’s someone everyone can agree with, it’s the Cookie Monster. Cookies are the very best of snack foods, loved by people across all cultures and no matter what type of diet they are sticking to. Keto? Loves cookies. Vegan? Loves Cookies. The Cookie Diet? Absolutely LOVES cookies. (it’s an actual diet, but we don’t recommend it).

However, making cookies is actually harder than it looks. I guarantee that if you’re not someone who bakes frequently, you’ll have at least some trouble with cookies. That’s why I try to stick to recipes that require the least possible work, as little ingredients as possible: Less is more when it comes to cookies, as you’ll see with this recipe.

Let’s make some cookies!

Peanut butter & almond flour cookies

Ingredients:

  • 50 grams fine almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded coconut or coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon cashew milk (or almond milk)
  • 400 grams peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • Sweetener and vanilla essence to taste


How to make:

  1. Preheat oven. Grease a baking tray with plenty of oil.
  2. In a large bowl, add all ingredients together, leaving the coconut and almond flour for last.
  3. Mix well without pressing down too much; instead, fold gently with a spatula. Take as much time as you need.
  4. Roll small dough balls with your palms and place them on the baking tray.
  5. Once done, press down gently on the dough balls with a fork to make them into cookies.
  6. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes.
  7. Let cool for 30 minutes before eating.

Now you have some delicious cookies. After one or two rounds of these peanut butter cookies, you should be ready to start experimenting with the recipe -the fun part- by adding things one by one. Try chocolate chips at first, and try and see how well it goes.
