You are going to love these cookies! My daughter and her friend made a similar recipe that they found on allrecipes.com. I was so proud of them. They wanted to bake something and researched the recipe and then made the cookies. They are really becoming self-sufficient at age 9.
The original batch of cookies were delicious crispy peanut butter cookies. Here is the recipe for those cookies. The batch we made at our house was modified from that recipe. We didn’t have enough peanut butter and I think our cookies turned out even better than the original version.
1 cup SunButter*
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
4 large eggs
2 cups beet sugar (you can use cane sugar)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine the SunButter, peanut butter, eggs and sugar. Stir in the coconut, and chocolate chips.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Remove the bowl from the refrigerator. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop 1″ balls of dough onto cookie sheets lined with Silpat or parchment paper. I love my Silpat mats and have a mini-scoop perfect for making cookies. Place 12 cookies per sheet, they won’t spread very much.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.
*FYI – sometimes when you bake with SunButter your baked goods turn green. This is just the sunflower seeds baking. Don’t worry – your cookies will still be great. Ours did not turn green in this recipe – but you never know:)
