SCD Recipe: Cherry Peanut Butter Marble Cookies

I don’t make SCD cookies (or any cookies for that matter) often, because I have a hard time getting them to come out right. I have some failed attempts I have never shared on these, but at last I thought these came out good!

They don’t have the usual texture of peanut butter cookies (hard to do without granulated sugar I think), but they do have a soft cake-like texture that is really nice.

These make a great pick-me-up snack or can even be a breakfast accompaniment – fruit, peanut butter, and lightly sweetened – that’s okay for breakfast, right?

I’m not an expert at marbling, but I was pretty happy with the contrast. Maybe some of you will be able to do better with that.

Ingredients
Servings: cookies
Instructions
  1. Puree cherries until smooth (I used a hand blender for this) and set aside
  2. Add peanut butter, honey, eggs, banana, lemon juice, and vanilla to a large bowl
  3. Stir until everything is well combined (you can pre-mash the banana ahead of time, but if it's really ripe you probably won't need to)
  4. Add almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and sea salt to the peanut butter mixture and stir until combined
  5. Remove one cup of the batter to a smaller bowl
  6. Stir in pureed cherries until well mixed
  7. Marble in the cherry batter to the bigger bowl of batter by pouring in a little and using a knife to marble it through
  8. Place dough in refrigerator for 30 minutes (or longer)
  9. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  10. Line baking pan with parchment paper
  11. Spoon dough by heaping tablespoons onto baking sheet leaving about 1" in between cookies
  12. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes until cookies feel soft to the touch and bounce back when pressed on the top. They shouldn't seem wet
  13. Cool on pan on wire rack for 15 minutes
  14. Slide parchment paper with cookies onto wire rack and cool completely
  15. Store in refrigerator

  1. Made these last night and they were delicious! I added a little more coconut and almond flour and switched out the peanut butter for almond butter~

    Thanks for this recipe!
