Paleo Peanut Butter Cookies

Given the choice over savory and sweet, I always choose savory. But sometimes, a girl needs a damn cookie. These peanut butter cookies are full of flavor, but made with only FIVE ingredients! They pair quite nicely with peaches (drizzled with honey and cinnamon), and pecans. They’re dairy-free, grain-free, and paleo!

I like to buy the kind of peanut butter that is strictly made from crushed up peanuts. Whole Foods has a Honey Roasted PB and it is DIVINE. I used regular PB for this recipe.

Peanut Butter Cookies
Makes: 12-14 cookies

For the cookies:
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2/3 cup almond flour
1/2 cup of honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 egg whites

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix dry ingredients together, and then add in honey and egg whites. Mix well. Grease baking sheet or lay down parchment paper. Form cookie balls and place 1 inch apart on cookie sheet. Flatten the top of each cookie with a fork into a crisscross pattern (to prevent dough from sticking to your fork, spray the fork with baking spray). Bake for 7-9 minutes (note: it could take longer depending how thick your cookies are). Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
