This recipe made 24 sandwiches, with some extra frosting to spare (trust me, you won't complain about that). These cookies were just over an inch in diameter. You should make a double batch. If you don't have coconut manna, these would taste amazing with just plain peanut butter with a little date paste to sweeten it.
Ingredients
  • COOKIES:
  • ½cup peanut butter powder
  • ½ cup flour (I used spelt)
  • ⅓cup date paste (soak ⅓ cup packed pitted dates in 1.3 ounces of water, and puree)
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • ¼ t salt
  • FROSTING:
  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
  • ¼ cup coconut manna melted (this is coconut meat pureed all smooth).
  • 2T date paste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300.
  2. You should probably make ½ cup of date paste (to do so, take ½ cup pitted dates, and soak with ¼ cup very hot water, and then puree).
  3. Mix together wet cookie ingredients, and then fold in dry ingredients.
  4. Roll onto a piece of parchment (I like to use parchment between the rolling pin and the dough as well, so I don't pile on the flour to avoid sticking).
  5. Use a cookie cutter and cut 'em.
  6. You can then transfer the parchment to baking sheets (I used 2).
  7. Make for 12minutes. Restrain yourself while they cool!
  8. While they're baking, mix together the frosting. You can melt the coconut manna at low heat, and then add it to a bowl with the other ingredients.
