Peanut Butter Cookies

During the holidays, it's pretty hard as an SCDer to stick to the plan. To help with my propensity to cheat and go off the diet, I played around with an existing PB Cookie recipe and substituted SCD friendly ingredients. If you've never baked with almond flour before, I'll warn you that the consistency of the batter/dough doesn't always look correct, but ends up baking up just great!! Make sure you buy Peanut Butter that has no sugar added (ingredients should read ONLY peanuts and salt). I love Trader Joe's organic.
