Sweet treats are part of my everyday routine, but I do make an effort to use ingredients that support my health. I used both almond and peanut butter in this recipe, but you could easily substitute cashew butter or tahini to make them paleo. The coconut flour helps them stick together, and the dates are the only sweetener.

I like to keep these cookies in the refrigerator and grab one whenever I want something sweet. These healthy cookies are perfect for kids too!

Once you make the batter in the food processor, you just have to use your hands to form the 10 cookie “patties.” The batter looks crumbly, but I promise it comes together very easily.

Then, just press a fork onto the tops to make the little traditional peanut butter cookie pattern.
