Black Sesame Seed Peanut Butter Cookies


These cookies taste just like peanut butter, so make sure you have some pb fans around before making them! The black sesame seeds lend themselves to a more sophisticated presentation and because they get toasted in the oven during baking they add a wonderful roasted crunch to every bite. This is definitely more “adult” than your typical peanut butter cookie.


1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp. Ener-G Egg Replacer, blended with 3 Tblsp. warm water
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tblsp. coconut flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
5 Tblsp. black sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Beat together peanut butter and sugar with an electric mixer until combined well, about 2 minutes. Beat in blended Egg Replacer, vanilla, coconut flour, and baking soda until smooth.
Place sesame seeds in a shallow bowl. Roll level teaspoons of dough into balls, then roll in seeds to coat. Arrange balls about 1 inch apart on 2 ungreased baking sheets.
Bake cookies, switching position of sheets halfway through, until puffed and cracked, about 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
