peanut butter cookies.

i decided to use my favorite brand of peanut butter for these cookies.. crunch time peanut butter & co peanut butter!! i love this brand because they are all natural and they have many different flavors to choose from.

2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon butter extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup truvia baking blend
pinch salt
1 egg
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder

with an electric mixer, beat coconut oil, peanut butter, truvia and brown sugar until blended and fluffy
add egg and extracts and mix well
in a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt
add wet ingredients to dry ingredients in about 3 increments until blended
the mixture will become crumbly, add a splash of almond milk to make the dough come together

form dough into balls on a cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes or until cookies are golden brown
take a fork and press down on each cookie to form the peanut butter cookie signature grooves (haha)
let cool on cooling rack
