Ingredients You Need

Preheat oven to 350°F and line large baking sheet with  parchment paper or silicone baking mat (15 cookies should fit as they do not spread). Set aside.


In a large bowl, add peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Stir with spatula until well combined and smooth. Add almond flour and mix until smooth dough forms.


Using small cookie dough scoop or tablespoon, drop cookie dough onto baking sheet leaving 1.5 inches in between (cookies do not spread but we will flatten them). Using a fork, press on cookie dough balls making a criss cross pattern.


Bake for 10 minutes on a middle rack. Remove cookies before any visible browning occurs and cookies are still soft. Let them cool off for about 30 minutes and they will harden. Sprinkle with salt if you wish and enjoy!


Store in a cool dry place for 3 days or freeze in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
