Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies – #FilltheCookieJar

This month the theme for the blogging group, Fill the Cookie Jar, is healthy or a cookie/bar that makes you think of a fresh start. For me, January is always a time to get a fresh start especially since I usually indulge over the holidays. These cookies are made with only four ingredients and take 20 minutes to make…plus they’re the perfect little treat to satisfy your sweet tooth!

These cookies use coconut flour in place of all-purpose flour. Coconut flour is high in fiber, protein and healthy fats. It’s also free of wheat and other grains, so a great option for those who have certain allergies.

If you’re not familiar with the Fill the Cookie Jar group, we’re a group of bloggers who share cookie or bar recipes the first Thursday of the month. Be sure to check out the link below to see all the other healthy/fresh start cookies and bars shared by the group.

Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies | Join Us, Pull up a Chair

1 banana
2 Tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup coconut flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mash the banana and peanut butter together with the vanilla. Stir in the coconut flour until completely combined. Scoop out teaspoon sized balls of dough. Place on a baking sheet and press down with a fork in a criss-cross pattern. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the cookies start to brown slightly. Remove from oven and allow to cool before enjoying.
