Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Flour Cookies

Can you tell Halloween sparked a sweet tooth? And it's my birthday on Wednesday... Uh oh.

To tide us over a few days until a legitimate reason for more sweets, I made these:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Flour Cookies

1/4 C coconut flour, sifted
1/4 C cocoa powder, sifted (not strictly necessary, but I had the sifter out, so I just threw it in with the coconut flour)
1/2 C peanut butter (or almond butter, or sunflower seed butter, etc)
1/4 C palm shortening
1/2 C brown sugar (or honey or maple syrup)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt

Mix peanut butter, shortening, sugar, eggs, vanilla & salt. Mix in cocoa powder & coconut flour. Scoop up with a tablespoon (actual measuring spoon) and roll into a ball in in your hands. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Flatten, criss-crossed, with tines of fork.

Bake at 375*F for 12-15min. Try to let them cool enough so you at least don't burn the roof of your mouth...

Makes ~20 cookies.
