A classic peanut butter cookie recipe with a delicious twist to it.

 These cookies represent a perfect balance of salty and sweet, and just melt in your mouth! It’s a quick and easy peanut butter cookie recipe with shredded coconut that grown ups AND kids / toddlers will absolutely love.

I was searching for peanut butter recipes to serve to my toddler (my doctor’s advice). 

I googled around but found many recipes way too sweet, and I didn’t feel comfortable feeding my kid a cookie with that much sugar in it. So I made a decision to substitute a part of the sugar with shredded coconut, just to see if it would work out…and seriously, it turned out so, so good. I like it more than regular peanut butter cookie recipes out there, and that says a lot, because I’ve always been a huge classic peanut butter cookie addict! Oh, and of course, most importantly: my kid loved them as much as I did!
