  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup coconut sugar packed

  • Add all ingredients to large bowl and mix until combined. Place bowl in fridge for 10 minutes to help dough become firm.

  • Bake for 8-10 minutes. After baking, let cool at least 5 minutes before removing. Repeat with rest of the dough.


  • Peanut butter needs to be at room temperature prior to making.
