{Clean Eating} Peanut Butter Meltaways

I wasn’t really sure what to call these – they are like a cookie, but they pretty much melt in your mouth as you are eating them.  Very peanut buttery and dense.

And they sure are rich!  Make sure you have a glass of milk handy.  This recipe doesn’t yield a lot, but it’s really about all you need.  When I was craving something sweet, I would eat like 1/2 of one of these and I was good.

Yields 9 cookies

{Clean Eating} Peanut Butter Meltaways

1 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients.  Pulse until everything comes together.  Use a small cookie scoop to drop cookies onto a baking sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes and let cool completely before removing from cookie sheet.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
