Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I seem to be on a baking kick lately.  No one at home seems to be complainingly though.  Here is the latest creation:

Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup brown rice flour

1/3 cup almond flour

1/3 cup coconut flour

3/4 cup sugar in the raw

2 Tbsp golden flax meal

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1 Tbsp baking powder

1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter

1 cup coconut milk

1 tsp vanilla


Combine dry ingredients.  In a sauce pan, add peanut butter and coconut milk, stir till peanut butter is melty.  Add vanilla to mixture.  Combine wet ingredients with dry.  Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheet.  Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes.
