Way better than store bought!


    For the cookie

    • 2 cups oat flour ( gluten free all purpose or almond flour would work as well)
    • 1 cup + 2 T peanut butter
    • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
    • 4 T coconut oil
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 T almond milk (You can add a bit more milk if the batter looks dry.)
    • 1 flax egg (I used a flax egg replacement)

    For the filling

    • 1 cup peanut butter
    • 1/4 cup maple syrup
    • 2 T coconut oil


    1. Preheat the oven to 350.
    2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
    3. In a saucepan, combine the peanut butter, flax egg, coconut oil, vanilla and milk.
    4. Cook on medium heat until everything is well combined and the peanut butter is soft.
    5. Set aside to cool down to lukewarm.
    6. Once the peanut butter mixture is cooled, add it to the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
    7. Form the dough into thin, long logs and place them onto a lined baking sheet. (see photo above for step by step instructions)
    8. Use a fork to make the impressions on the cookies.
    9. Use your fingers to push the sides of each cookie in at the center to shape them like nutter butters.
    10. Bake them in the oven for about 15 minutes.
    11. While the cookies are baking, add all the filling ingredients to a blender.
    12. Mix until smooth.
    13. Frost the cookies and form sandwiches after the cookies have completely cooled.


    Recipe Notes

    My cookies came out pretty thick. When I make these again, I will thin the amount of dough out that I use. I also initially added 1/2 tsp baking powder to the dry ingredients and I felt the cookies rose too much. That is why I left it out of the recipe.

    If you want to cut the calories and sugar a bit, you can just fill the cookies with plain peanut butter instead of mixing up the sweet filling.
