Confession: These could be the easiest cookies I have on the blog. It’s almost a no brainer recipe that you can’t mess up. And guess what? These cookies are gluten free, grain free and dairy free, so if you’re looking for a cookie that meets that criteria, then these are for you.

Actually wait, if you happen to love peanut butter, then these are for you. And if you don’t love peanut butter, then simply use cashew or almond butter. Told you they were easy.

These maple peanut butter cookies came to fruition after I had one of those maple sea salt RXBARS and slathered it with peanut butter as a post workout snack. Holy love of my life, it was AMAZING.

So on a quest to recreate that lovely flavor, I decided to make a peanut butter cookie that was sweetened with pure maple syrup instead of sugar. They turned out magically soft and chewy with pure peanut butter flavor and a hint of maple goodness. It’s simple: I love them very, very much. I used a few tablespoons of low carb coconut flour to keep the cookies together and they were absolutely perfect in every way.

You can easily add chocolate chips to these cookies, or dried fruit. They aren’t overly sweet so they make for the perfect afternoon treat, especially when you add chocolate chips (or a drizzle of dark chocolate) and dip them in a little almond milk. Mmmm hmmm.
