My lovely friend and insanely talented chef Nicole Gomez has allowed me to share some of her delicious recipes for healthy snacks. Here’s one:
1 cup organic coconut oil
2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
Cream coconut oil, peanut butter, and sugars together in a bowl then add eggs 1 at a time.
In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, slowly stir into coconut oil mixture.
Put dough in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Roll dough into 2 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern.Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 14 minutes or until cookies begin to brown. Remove baking sheet from the oven let cookies rest for 4 minutes then serve.
