These cookies have no butter and no sugar and they are even gluten free (if you use gluten free oat flour), which means you can eat the whole batch, not like I ate half the batch as I was baking them or anything.
Peanut Butter, Honey and Coconut Cookies
¾ cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup + 2 Tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup oat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment or silicone baking mats.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together peanut butter, honey, and vanilla on medium until smooth and well combined, about 30-45 seconds. Add oat flour and baking soda, mixing on low until combined.
3. Using a small cookie dough scoop, scoop dough, roll into balls and then roll in coconut. Place cookies on baking sheets, use fork to make crisscross if desired. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool for 3 minutes on baking sheet and then transfer to wire rack to continue cooling. Makes about 24 cookies.
