Now comes the bummer of the story…do you think I could achieve the same result the next 4 times I made these cookies?

NOPE!

“What in the world is happening here?” was my exact thought each time these silly cookies came out the oven dry (sorry Sharon for the 2nd batch!) or crumbly or just not the way I wanted them to be (sorry family for the other 2 batches!).

Here’s a little glimpse into my life: I can’t stop until I get a recipe perfect. I literally can’t move on to other recipes until I get it right.

OCD much?

I finally came to the conclusion that natural peanut butter (only contains peanuts) bakes differently than regular peanut butter (contains peanuts, sugar, oil). I maybe should have known this…but honestly I have used regular and natural interchangeably and had not noticed a difference until now.

This recipe just wanted to make me work for it I guess! But the result is the most delicious little cookies free from gluten, grains, dairy (use Enjoy Life chocolate chips), and refined sugar.

Plus, they don’t taste like cardboard if all the “frees” have you worried. 😉

This batter makes 20 cookies that are quickly devoured. If you are needing to feed more than one hungry husband and two children with empty pits for tummies, I would make a double batch.

In other words, if you would like cookies around for more than 2 1/2 hours just use the whole stinkin’ jar of peanut butter. 😉

Ingredients
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Servings: cookies
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Mix all 6 ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Drop 1 Tbsp balls of dough onto prepared baking sheet. You can leave them as mounds or flatten a little to be more cookie-shaped once baked.
  3. Bake for 7-8 minutes. It is better to under-bake than over-bake. Trust me! Remove from cookie sheet after 10 minutes to a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container.
Recipe Notes

Baking with natural peanut butter produces different results than standard peanut butters in many recipes. This is the case with this particular recipe. If you are using "normal" peanut butter, not a peanut butter that touts "natural" use this recipe
