Crunchy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches

Ceres Organics Crunchy Peanut Butter is made from certified organic peanuts that are lightly roasted, then crushed into a rich creamy spread. A dash of natural sea salt is the finishing touch. A delicious base ingredient for these moreish flourless cookies. 


1 cup Ceres Organics Crunchy Peanut Butter
3 tablespoons raisins, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 large egg, size 7
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup roasted peanuts
100 grams 70% cocoa dark chocolate 

Whipped Peanut Butter Filling
½ cup Ceres Organics Crunchy Peanut Butter
45 grams butter, very soft but not melted
½ teaspoon ground ginger
pinch cayenne or chilli powder or more, for a spicy fillling (optional)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup icing sugar, sifted
2–3 tablespoons milk 


Preheat the oven to 150°C fan bake.

Put the peanut butter, raisins, ginger, egg, baking powder, sugar and the vanilla in a large bowl and mix until well combined.

Chop the peanuts and chocolate into smallish pieces and mix into the dough. If the pieces are too large the biscuits will fall apart.

Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and then use your fingertips to flatten them into approximately 7cm circles, spacing them 2cm apart.

Bake for approximately 9–10 minutes or until the tops are lightly golden.

Cool on the tray for 10 minutes before carefully transferring to a cooling rack. The biscuits are very fragile when hot. Sandwich together with filling or enjoy on their own. Makes about 16 (depending on their size)

Whipped Peanut Butter Filling

Beat all the ingredients together until light and airy. Transfer the filling to a piping bag with a 1cm nozzle and pipe on to half of the biscuits or simply spread with a knife.

Top with the remaining biscuits.
