These little moist peanut butter treats have landed in our kitchen twice in the last two weeks. Last week, the cookies lasted a single day. The rapid disappearance was due to 2 factors; one, the delicious taste, and two, during homeschool, Emmett snuck his chair up to the kitchen counter, and meticulously licked every last bit of chocolate off of each frosted cookie. He's no dummy!
Peanut Butter and Honey Delights
1 c extra virgin coconut oil
1 c unsweetened natural peanut butter
1/2 c honey
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
2 eggs (powdered or fresh) or 2 T ground flax
1 t vanilla
3 c freshly ground whole grain flour
Mix all ingredients, excluding flour, until smooth. Add flour and mix gently. You may have to reduce flour or add more depending on the dough consistency. Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes.
Chocolate Fudge Frosting
1/2 c cocoa powder
1/2 c pure maple syrup
1/2 t vanilla
dash of salt
This frosting is a great hot fudge, and fruit dip. It is so easy to make. Usually I just dump and change the proportions based on the consistency I want. Many recipes call for added coconut oil, but I think the added fat is unnecessary. We prefer without.
