Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup freshly ground organic peanut butter
1 cup sucanat, or packed golden brown sugar
1 organic egg
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. organic vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Put all the ingredients in a mixer and mix on low until just blended.
  3. Portion the dough with a heaping tablespoon. Lightly moisten hands with water and roll into balls. Arrange on two ungreased baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart and press slightly to form cookie shape (the batter does not spread while baking).
  4. Bake cookies until puffed, golden on bottom and still soft to touch in center, about 12 minutes. Cool on sheets 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; cool completely before eating.
