You guys! It’s so snowy and cold outside, I think we ALL need some cookies, especially if they have PEANUT BUTTER CUPS in them! These cookies are insanely good, and they’re so easy to make. All you need is 10 ingredients, 1 bowl, and about half an hour and you’ll have cookies in your hands! 

Ingredients You’ll Need: 

  • All purpose gluten free flour 
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Coconut sugar 
  • Vanilla extract 
  • Eggs
  • Peanut butter (creamy!) 
  • Coconut oil or butter 
  • Maple syrup 
  • PB cups 

Tools You’ll Need: 

  • Mixing bowl 
  • Measuring cups + spoons 
  • Microwave 
  • Oven 
  • Cookie sheet 
  • Sharp knife

Storage Tips: 

  • I’d recommend storing these cookies in a loosely covered (not air-tight) container for 2-3 days, then transferring to a Ziplock bag in the freezer after that!
