Ingredients

  • ½ cup GF oat flour
  • ½ cup all purpose GF baking flour King Arthur recommended
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • cup coconut sugar can sub natural brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • organic cane sugar for rolling
  • Filling:
  • ½ cup all-fruit preserves

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, blend butter and peanut butter until smooth and creamy.  In a separate bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add coconut sugar to peanut butter mixture and blend until smooth. Add egg and vanilla, and beat until incorporated. Reduce speed to low. Add dry ingredients, and mix until combined.
  • Scoop level tablespoons of dough, and form into balls. Roll into tablespoon sized balls, then roll in the sugar to coat.
  • Transfer cookie balls to parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart.  Bake until cookies are puffy, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, and make indentations in centers by pressing with the handle end of a wooden spoon. Return to oven, and bake until edges are golden, 6 to 7 minutes more.
  • Transfer sheets to wire racks, and let cool completely.
