Five Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup egg whites or 1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups finely ground unsweetened flaked coconut*
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together peanut butter, sugar, and egg and until well combined - about 1-2 minutes. Beat in baking soda until combined. Beat in coconut until combined.
Roll heaping tablespoons of dough into balls. Place on baking sheets, spacing about 3/4-inch apart. Flatten balls making a criss-cross with a fork. Sprinkle with a little sugar, if desired. Bake 12 minutes or until cookies are golden around the edges, and crisp. Cool 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.
Makes about 1 dozen cookies depending how big you make them
*I used Bob's Red Mill unsweetened coconut flakes. I finely ground the flakes in a food processor and then measured out the 1 1/2 cups.
