For the peanut butter cookies:

  • ¾ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp butter melted and cooled
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt

For the strawberry filling:

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries chopped
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for peanut butter cookies and whisk together until fully combined.
  • Divide dough into 16 balls and place evenly onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a fork to flatten the cookies.
  • Bake cookies for 15 minutes.
  • While the cookies bake, make your strawberry filling. In a small saucepan, add chopped strawberries, water, honey and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for an additional 10-12 minutes, occasionally mashing strawberries to break them down into a thick mixture.
  • Remove strawberry filling from heat, add to a freezer-safe bowl and let cool down in the freezer for 15-20 mins.
  • Remove cookies from oven and cool on a wire rack until cool to the touch and set aside.
  • For each sandwich cookie, spread 3 tablespoons of filling on the bottom of a peanut butter cookie, then top with another cookie.
