These crunchy biscuits are a decadent treat for peanut butter lovers. They come together in no time at all and more importantly, taste great!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time
: 10-12 minutes
Yield
: 15 Biscuits

Ingredients
  • 2 cups of Pastry Flour, helps the cookies with their chewiness
  • 1 cup of Peanut Butter, I use 99th Monkey: Unsalted Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter available from our Provedore Shop
  • 1/3 cup of Roasted Peanuts⁠
  • 1/3 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • 1 cup of Maple Syrup⁠
  • Generous pinch of Salt⁠
  • 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda⁠
  • 2 teaspoons of Vanilla Paste
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. 
  2. Combine flour, salt, peanuts and baking soda in a medium-sized mixing bowl and stir. ⁠
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the EVOO, peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla paste until well combined. ⁠
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix until only just combined. ⁠
  5. Put aside for a few minutes, and then give the mixture 1 or 2 last folds with a spatula. ⁠It should be a soft, loose dough.
  6. Go ahead and spoon large tablespoons into your hand and roll gently until forming a ball. ⁠
  7. Place onto baking paper and push down on the top of the biscuits very lightly. ⁠
  8. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes at 180 degrees C, better to be under than over if you like them chewy, or until golden brown on top. ⁠
  9. Take cookies off the tray immediately and place onto a cooling rack to ensure they don't continue to cook. ⁠
