As I said before, I am learning how to cook with coconut flour. It has been challenging in more ways than one. As I made these cookies today, I was led back to a thought that I had when I lived in Japan. When I first arrived there, I realized that Japanese "sweets" were not as sugary as American sweets. When I returned home, it was one of the shocks to my system. I had adapted to the treats and now I was "over-sugared".
Today as I tasted the new peanut butter cookie I realized that my brain has an imprint about what peanut butter cookies should taste like. These were different, not bad, just different. Very similar to my adjustment in Japan, I am needing to adjust my mental imprint for peanut butter cookies.
My thanks to Pinapple and Coconut at http://www.pineappleandcoconut.com/reicpes/soft-coconut-peanut-butter-cookies/ for sharing this recipe.
1 C peanut butter (no sugar added)
2 TBSP coconut oil

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare cookie sheets with either parchment paper or silicone bake mats (I use a baking stone instead of a cookie sheet.)
