Paleo Peanut Butter Drops
A simple sweet treat that's completely paleo/grain-free!
For the dough
- 1 jar (500g) natural, unsweetened smooth peanut butter
- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
For the center icing (substitute chocolate chips if desired)
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
- 1/4 cup coconut oil (or softened grass-fed butter)
- 2 tbsp maple syrup or raw honey
- pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 325F.
Mix together peanut butter, eggs and vanilla in bowl. In separate bowl, stir coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Combine with peanut butter mixture until smooth, doughy texture.
Roll dough into bite-sized balls and place on greased baking pan. (I always grease my pans with butter or coconut oil). Using end of spoon or other utensil, form a hole in the centre of each cookie.
Prepare icing by combining all ingredients in small bowl with spoon. Transfer to small resealable bag, cut hole in corner and squeeze into centre of cookies.
Bake at 325F for 10 mins until cookies are golden brown on bottom but are still soft.
For this recipe I like making the chocolate icing, but you can use chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, banana slices, or a combination of any other ingredient instead.
