Happy National Peanut Butter Day & A Recipe For Natural Peanut Butter Cookies

Happy National Peanut Butter Day!

Stacked Natural Peanut Butter Cookies with Partially Eaten Cookie
Or, as I like to call it: Excuse To Eat Excessive Amounts Of Peanut Butter Day!

Natural Peanut Butter Cookies
In honour of this special occasion, I give you Natural Peanut Butter Cookies. They’re simple, gluten free, and a little less sweet than traditional cookies. Plus, they have a soft, yet crumbly texture and a delicate flavour that brings the pure taste of the natural peanut butter forward.

So go on, celebrate this day… even if it is just an excuse to eat a ton of peanut butter.

Stacked Natural Peanut Butter Cookies
Natural Peanut Butter Cookies
Makes 15

1 cup natural, unsalted peanut butter*
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Beat peanut butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer on high until light and creamy; add sugar, salt, baking soda, and vanilla, and beat for 30 seconds. Add egg, and beat just until incorporated.

3. Using your hands, form 15 balls out of the dough and place 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. Press each ball down with the back of a fork, and place in preheated oven. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until cookies are light golden in colour.

4. Cool completely on cookie sheet before storing in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

* Can’t find natural peanut butter? Blend a couple cups of plain, unsalted peanuts in a food processor on high until creamy.
