These Churro Peanut Butter Cookies are grain free and refined sugar free and super packed with flavor!

Coooookies! I love most all cookies in the world but peanut butter cookies are one of the best! Now they can totally be made with other nut butters but dang I think peanut butter can’t be beat in these cookies.  Then you gotta coat them in cinnamon coconut sugar to get nice and sweet on the outside – just like a churro!  And these cookies don’t even have flour of any kind in them.  Just like the classic, all it is it peanut butter, egg, coconut sugar and baking soda.  Obviously the classic one has white sugar but I loveee coconut sugar!  All the sweetness of white sugar but so much less processed and filled with a caramel flavor that is perfect in these cookies.  I have always been a huge fan of easy recipes (as you probably know), but now that I am a mama ease is more important that ever.  It also doesn’t hurt that these cookies are Matt’s fave so if I make him a batch he is super happy, and so am I because it didn’t take much work!

Oh and did I mention the importance of a sprinkle of sea salt at the end?  I think all baked goods are made 100 times better with some sea salt on them, but something about the sweet and salty combo of these peanut butter cookies makes it an absolute necessity. So go buy yourself some flakey sea salt and watch all of your dreams come true.

    I made these wth raw sugar and brown sugar (did half of each because I didn’t have coconut sugar). Although delicious (because look at those ingredients- why wouldn’t they be?!), they are super crumbly. You can kind of still eat them like a cookie, but I wouldn’t risk dipping them in milk.

    Would the type of sugar make that big of a difference? I may try adding an extra egg and some protein powder next time to bind it.

      That is strange they shouldn’t be crumbly! Maybe you flattened them too much or maybe the sugar replacement just didn’t work!

      This happened to me as well. Delicious, but too crumbly to even be picked up. I did use coconut sugar. I thought maybe baking it for longer would help, but it didn’t. Wondering if it’s the consistency of the PB?

      Same thing happened to me. Delicious, but could barely pick them up due to being so crumbly. I tried 2 eggs this time and the consistency was much better – though they flattened a lot. The dough was also too sticky to roll in the cinnamon sugar with the extra egg, so I had to sprinkle it on top instead. Still delicious.

    Approximately how many cookies does this make? I am calculating the nutrion facts in my fitness pal before I make them. Thank you!

    Delicious. Came out wonderful and I had to use three different but butters. I underestimated how much a cup of PB is. They came out much bigger than I expected but that’s not a negative thing. I will be making them again and again. Great addition to my gluten dairy and refined sugar free diet. Thanks
