All the very best things in life are in the “triple category”. The Hunger Games, triple axels, triple layer brownies, triple stuft Oreo’s (obviously). How do we triple the goodness in peanut butter cookies?
- Peanut Butter
- Peanut Flour
- and Whole Peanuts
These cookies are a peanut butter triple threat.
With all that peanut butter, these cookies are balanced out with warm melted chocolate. Make sure to generously dip these cookies in your favorite chocolate, dunk in chopped salted peanuts and have a large glass of milk handy. Feel free to high-five yourself at anytime during the process!
These cookies are super soft and ultra moist, making them last for days! Placing them in the fridge to cool before and after dipping is important. This helps the cookies firm a bit for dunking in the chocolate and makes that chocolate set fast! This is also the perfect time to gather your friends and get that milk ready. Enjoy each triple peanutty bite!
Triple Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup Unsalted Natural Creamy or Chunky Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Coconut Oil, soft like soft butter
1 2/3 cup Coconut Sugar
1/2 cup Applesauce, at room temperature so it doesn’t the seize the coconut oil
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 cups Peanut Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt (omit if using salted peanut butter)
1 cup Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips or chopped chocolate
1/2 cup Salted Peanuts, crushed
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, cream together the first 3 ingredients until smooth. Mix in all the rest of the ingredients, except for the chocolate and peanuts. Scoop out about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes. These cookies soften a bit over time and are already super moist, so do not under bake. Place in the fridge to cool for about 10 minutes. Dip in chocolate and sprinkle with peanuts immediately after being chilled. Place back in fridge to set for about 5-10 minutes or until chocolate has set. Store leftovers, covered at room temperature.
