Description

I adapted this recipe from Gwyneth Paltrow's, It's All Good Cookbook. I switched out the almond butter for peanut butter and sifted all the ingredients together creating a lighter, chewier cookie. Packed with protein and free of refined sugar, this is a great cookie to have on hand postpartum or any time you are trying to eliminate refined sugar or gluten.

Get Started
Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment or silpats. Sift together the flour, sea salt, and baking powder.

In a separate bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until combined.

Step 4

Using a small ice cream scoop (the size of a generous tablespoon), scoop cookies onto the baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.

Step 5

Wet your fingertips and press down each cookie into a little disk. Sprinkle the top with Maldon salt.

Bake for 12-14 minutes until cookies are just firm and golden around the edges. Let cool and enjoy!

Done!
