We are featuring another CBD dessert!
These are perfect to replace your evening or daily dose of CBD with a soft, puffy, delicious peanut butter cookie instead. This recipe will make about 36 cookies at about 28mg of CBD each. If you are looking for a stronger dose of CBD, simply cut the recipe in ½ and keep the isolate amount the same. These cookies use coconut oil instead of butter, making them a little bit healthier and a perfect recipe to mix in 99% CBD Isolate.
1 ½ cup of creamy peanut butter
1 cup coconut oil, softened (consistency of soft butter works best)
2 cups light brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 cups of flour
4 teaspoons corn starch
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
First, combine the 1 gram of 99% CBD Isolate with 1 cup of coconut oil.
In a stand mixer, combine peanut butter, infused coconut oil, eggs, sugar.
Beat on Medium-High speed to cream until light and fluffy (4-5 minutes).
*Pro Tip: If coconut oil is too hard, microwave it in a small bowl for 5-10 seconds. If it is runny or melted, place in the freezer for about 5 minutes or until it firms up. Coconut oil works best if it is the consistency of soft butter.
Scrap the sides of the bowl. Add Vanilla and beat for an additional minute.
Add flour, corn starch, baking soda and salt. Mix for 1 minute until just combined.
*Pro Tip: If your dough seems wet or isn’t combining, add up to ½ cup of flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until Play-Dough consistency is reached.
Use a medium cookie scoop (about 2 tablespoons) to form mounds and place dough mounds on a large plate. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours (up to 5 days). When ready to cook, leave dough out for 15-20 minutes to bring to warm up slightly for best results.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line or grease a baking sheet.
Place dough on baking sheet, leaving them 2 inches apart.
Bake for 7-9 minutes or until tops have just set. (They might look undercooked, pale or glossy – that’s fine!)
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes. Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months. You can also store the uncooked dough in your freezer for up to 3 months if you don’t want to make all 36 cookies at once.
What is the best way to store these cookies?
The fridge and freezer are both great options! The dough can be stored in the fridge for weeks and cooked as desired. Once baked, the cookies can be stored in an airtight container in your pantry or refrigerated for up to 1 week OR frozen for up to 3 months.
Can I add any other ingredients to this recipe?
Yes! Add ½ cup chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips, raisins, cranberries, chopped nuts (pecans work well). You can add whatever you like to these cookies. If you need a stronger dose of CBD in each cookie, just cut the recipe in half and leave the isolate the same.
Are there any other benefits of eating these cookies?
Yes! The healthy fats, fiber, and protein in peanut butter help you feel full for a longer period of time. It can help curb cravings throughout the day if eaten before meals or two hours before your next meal. It can also be your healthy snack.
How many cookies should I eat in one sitting?
This recipe makes about 36 medium sized cookies. The serving size is 1 cookie (28 mg CBD). If you are looking for a stronger dose feel free to eat 2-3 cookies at a time! The main thing is to gradually increase the amount of cookies and of course you should always consult your doctor.
