Peanut Butter Blossoms (grain and refined sugar free)

I don’t post treats very often but if you need one….try this one! When I want treats, I want nuts and chocolate! Hershey Kisses are of course not “paleo”, “primal”, or “clean” so eat with caution 😉 Just kidding….it’s a treat, so who cares.

Ingredients

1 cup thick peanut butter (I buy freshly ground, all natural)

1 cup coconut sugar

1 large egg

1 ts baking soda

1 ts pure vanilla extract

pinch of fine sea salt

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix peanut butter and coconut sugar so that it’s fully combined. In a separate bowl, whisk egg together with baking soda, vanilla, and salt. Pour egg mixture into peanut butter mixture and mix well until completely combined. Pour in chocolate chips and fold in to combine.

Use a tablespoon to scoop out dough, make into a ball, and place on baking sheet spaced about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes. Once out of the oven, immediately press Hershey Kiss into the center so that it stays put. Let cool 5-10 minutes before transferring to wire rack to let cool completely before serving. Enjoy!
