Shortbread Peanut Butter Cookies Covered In Chocolate (aka Tagalongs)

Ingredients

SHORTBREAD COOKIE
  • 1/2 c almond flour, finely ground
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1-2 tbsp. warm water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
PEANUT BUTTER FILLING
CHOCOLATE
  • 2.5 oz dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
OTHER
  • tapioca flour for rolling or flour of choice
  • flaked sea salt for topping

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the almond flour and protein powder. Add the melted coconut oil and vanilla then stir using a fork. Every protein powder is different so add the water 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach a dough consistency.
  3. Dust a clean surface with tapioca flour and roll dough out very thin, about 1/8 inch or less. Use a small round cookie cutter (I used the cap to my cinnamon spice) to cut out cookies. Repeat until you have used all the dough. Recipe will make 20-22 cookies.
  4. Place cookies on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes.
  5. Once cooled, stir together peanut butter and sugar. Evenly distribute about 1/2 tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture on top of each cookie.
  6. Melt chocolate and coconut oil together in a microwave safe bowl or double boiler.
  7. Spoon chocolate over each peanut butter topped cookie, using the back of the spoon to help spread the chocolate over the edges.
  8. Place cookies in the freezer for 20 minutes before sprinkling with flaked salt and serving.
