My Dad's favorite cookie were peanut butter cookies. These were made with Dad in mind - my hero! We share a deep love for anything peanut butter, but especially in cookie form.

These peanut butter cookies can be shaped however you please. I'll share our classic way of pressing these with a measuring cup for easy, round cookies.

Here is the fifth of twelve P.S. & Co.™ cookie recipes dropping this holiday season.

Yields about 30 cookies.



Wet ingredients

2 cups very dark maple syrup

2 cups organic roasted peanut butter, unsalted

2 Tbsp unsweetened vanilla extract


Dry ingredients

8 cups of almond flour 

1 Tbsp sea salt



10 oz melted organic dark chocolate (for dipping)



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line sheet tray with parchment.

  2. In a stand mixer, use paddle attachment to combine peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla and sea salt.

  3. Slowly combine 1 cup of almond flour at a time into the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Scrape clean the sides and bottom of bowl as needed.  Dough should be slightly wet to touch, but not sticky. 

  4. Grab an ice cream scoop (doesn't matter the size, a large scoop yields a large cookie, a small scoop yields a smaller cookie. Use what you have!)

  5. I like to use a measuring cup, line the bottom with a square of parchment paper, and press each cookie scoop to about 1/4" thickness. The measuring cup makes a pretty perfect circle.

  6. Can also use a cookie cutter to make shapes after pressing out with a measuring cup, save the scraps and collect leftover batter to press out more cookies.

  7. Bake for about 6-8 minutes or until outer edges appear golden and puffy.  Cookies will slightly puff as they bake.

  8. Cool to room temperature or place in refrigerator to cool quickly.  Wrap or place in a freezer safe container and place in the freezer to harden. (Please keep in mind, the larger the cookie, the longer the bake time and vice versa.)

  9. Remove cookies from freezer and decorate by dipping cookies in the melted chocolate. 

  10. Prepare parchment lined cookie trays to place your chocolate dipped cookies.

  11. Place back in fridge/freezer until chocolate hardens.

  12. Enjoy chilled or straight from the freezer!

The fifth recipe in our amazing freezer-box series is a classic peanut butter cookie made healthier!

These cookies are delicious at room temperature as a soft cookie, too. I personally love snacking on these out of the freezer. Make one batch and have it last for weeks to enjoy as you please. The perfect nutrient-dense snack or fuel for hikes/runs/working out or anytime.

Happy baking and drop a comment if you have questions or just to let me know how these cookies turned out for you! - Andrea
