Peanut Butter, Honey and Coconut Cookies

I am not usually one to shove a bunch of ingredients into a recipe. As I have mentioned before, I like to take a simpler approach when it comes to cooking and baking, but I am guessing you want to call me a hypocrite after reading that title (and another loaded cookie recipe that I want to share soon). Three distinct flavors jammed into one cookie seems a little over the top for my taste, but I saw the recipe on Pinterest and decided to go a little outside my comfort zone and try a jacked up recipe! To be honest, even posting this recipe has me a little mad at myself because of all the flavors, but here goes.

 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.
