Peanut/Sun Butter Cookies

June 6, 2010 at 1:30 am 2 comments

I’m not sure what to call these cookies. I based the recipe off of one called Sunbutter Greenies from The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook. But I switched up the ingredients some (I used both Sunbutter and peanut butter, and I used agave nectar instead of 1 cup of the maple syrup) so they are neither primarily Sunbutter nor did they turn out green. Name suggestions? I was skeptical about the recipe because of the changes I made, and because of how simple it was. I just felt like I wasn’t using enough ingredients! They turned out VERY well though the bottoms were a little too brown (which was strange because my oven usually under-cooks).

My recipe
– 2 cups plus 4 tbsp basic gluten-free flour mix
– 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1 tsp salt
– 3/4 cups SunButter
– 3/4 cups smooth peanut butter
– 1/2 cup maple syrup
– 1 cup agave nectar
– 2 tsp vanilla extract
– 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix together the dry ingredients, then heat up the butters and add to the dry mix with the syrups and vanilla. Mix with a spoon and then add the chocolate chips. I used a cookie dropper and had enough dough for 28 cookies. Bake for 15 minutes.

    I just have to know…what was in the original recipe that made them green?

    Apparently when you mix SunButter and maple syrup, it turns them green. And actually the dough DID turn bright green! But the cookies didn’t.
