Peanut Butter Coconut Cookies~Vegan & Gluten Free
3/4 cup sorghum flour
1/4 cup brown rice flour (superfine or regular)
1/4 cup potato starch
2 tbsp tapioca flour
1 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1/3 cup + 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp vegan margarine
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tbsp flaxseed meal mixed with 4 tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut flaked, toasted (to toast, simply place in oven in single layer on cookie sheet at 375 °F, until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes.)
Preheat oven to 350 °F.
In large electric mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients using a whisk until well combined.
In separate medium sized bowl, cream together peanut butter, margarine and sugar until smooth. Add in prepared flaxseed meal and vanilla and stir well.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until clumpy. The dough will be slightly dry, but you’ll be able to pack it into a clump, typical of peanut butter or oatmeal cookie dough.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Press down with fork and top with toasted coconut.
Bake 9-11 minutes. Let cool at least 20 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
