Small Batch Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies with Cacao Maca Icing

The recipe I am sharing today combines my love of nut butter and superfoods and passion for baking cookies. They are healthy peanut butter cookies with cacao maca icing! So, where are all my Peanut Butter Lovers at? And my cookie lovers?


Well, have I got the recipe for you! An indulgent perfectly textured cookie with mega PB flavor! Because with nut butter, you either go big or go home.


Peanut butter cookies are such a classic, it’s only right and just to provide with a refined sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan version that (dare I say?) outshines its less healthy counterpart. These low sugar peanut butter cookies will have the everyone second guessing if they are your original recipe!


 When nut butter is combined with sweet coconut sugar and large flaked sea salt, magic happens! And top it off with a bittersweet maca infused chocolate sauce packed with the superfood benefits of maca and cacao!


Trust me: These soft, tender cookies with crispy edges are truly love at first bite! 


So treat yourself to a night in that involves some R&R and plenty of these delicious, healthy peanut butter cookies =)
