Peanut butter blossoms are one of my favorite cookies to make at Christmas time, and this recipe does NOT disappoint. There is something incredible about combining peanut butter and chocolate, and I think the best way to do that is with peanut butter blossoms 🙂 These cookies are SO good that I literally ate 8 in 2 days… Oops!
These peanut butter blossoms are dairy-free (if you use chocolate chips instead of Hershey Kisses), and they can be made refined sugar free if you do not roll them in cane sugar! These cookies took less than 30 minutes to make!! When I say these are easy to make… I mean it! Plus, you probably have all of the ingredients in your house already! Give these a try this Christmas (or after hehe).. I revamped the recipe while I was making Christmas cookie boxes, so check out the new & improved recipe & photos below 🙂
Peanut Butter Blossoms
Makes 48 cookies
- 3/4 cup coconut oil, softened (microwave for 15 seconds)
- 1 cup coconut sugar (or sub 1/2 cup granulated sugar + 1/2 cup packed brown sugar)
- 2/3 natural peanut butter (I used Trader Joe’s)
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp salt
- 1.5 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tbsp organic cane sugar for rolling (omit for refined sugar free cookies or sub granulated sugar)
- Dark chocolate chips, for topping as desired (sub Hershey Kisses if not DF)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, beat together the coconut oil and sugar with an electric mixer. Beat in the peanut butter. Then add the egg and vanilla extract. Beat in the salt and baking soda next. Lastly, slowly add the flour in and beat until combined.
- Roll small balls in the cane sugar until fully coated. Place on baking sheet and flatten slightly with fingers.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes. Immediately after removing them from the oven, press a thumbprint sized well into the warm cookie using a small spoon. Immediately place the chocolate chips into the wells.
- Let cool & enjoy!
“Jesus replied, “If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me.”
Wow… Jesus, our perfect example. He is so humble. He recognized that His “mission” on this Earth was to glorify His father. He did not want nor try to bring glory to Himself, but, rather, He did it all for His Father. He recognized that God would glorify Him.
I want to be more like Jesus. I want to do EVERYTHING to bring glory to GOD’S name, not my own. I do not want to be prideful. I do not want to take credit for God’s work. He is sovereign over all. All of the glorious things that happen to me and through me and because of HIM. Praise God. Give His name glory. Giving glory to our names means nothing. Fix your eyes on Him and His kingdom.
How can you better bring glory to God’s name? How can you greaten His kingdom during your time on this side of heaven? Pray about it! Ask God to reveal this to you.
Love you all!! Keep your head up, and stay healthy ❤
If you plan on making these dairy-free, use chocolate chips instead of Hershey Kisses. I specifically LOVED using Hu Gems. Original photo from first version of the recipe:
