These cannabis peanut butter cookies are the same delicious melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter cookies you already know and love infused with cannabis coconut oil, cannabutter, cannasugar, or cannabis concentrates.
CANNABIS PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
This recipe is the best warm, delicious, melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter cookie made even better because it comes with multiple cannabis-infusion options!
Yes, you could transform any peanut butter cookie recipe into a cannabis-infused peanut butter cookie.
Simply swap the fat called for, like butter or oil, for cannabis butter or cannabis oil, and voila – you have a cannabis-infused cookie.
But if you’re looking for the perfect cannabis peanut butter cookie recipe that has been made specifically with cannabis-infused oil, cannabutter, cannabis sugar, or cannabis concentrates – this is it!
And if you’re brand new to making cannabis recipes, be sure to get my beginner’s guide to cannabis edibles to help you on your journey.
CHOOSE YOUR INFUSION OPTION
You can’t make cannabis peanut butter cookies without one of the staple recipes important for every cannabis kitchen: cannabis coconut oil, cannabutter, cannabis sugar or cannabis concentrates.
You can use any option you want, or mix and match them to adjust the potency and taste of your final product.
CANNABIS COCONUT OIL OR CANNABUTTER
Used interchangeably, baking with cannabis oil or cannabutter is an easy way to infuse a broad-spectrum of compounds like CBD or THC from the cannabis plant and get them into the food you are eating.
As a heads up, you will want to make sure you have one of these recipes prepared BEFORE diving into making your own cannabis-infused peanut butter cookies.
The process involves cannabis decarboxylation and then oil infusion and takes approximately 5-hours.
The process of infusion is nearly the same, but does have some differences, which is why I have two different guides for you:
- How to Make Cannabis-Infused Coconut Oil
- Easy, Step-by-Step Guide to Making Cannabutter
Again, it is your choice which one you want to make, both work well in this recipe.
You can also make these cannabis peanut butter cookies with cannabis-infused sugar if you have some on hand.
Cannasugar is made by pouring a QWET tincture or a Green Dragon tincture over white sugar and letting the alcohol evaporate off, leaving a cannabis-infused sugar behind.
It is entirely up to you whether or not you want to use cannabis oil or cannasugar in this recipe.
Additionally, you could use BOTH infused oil or butter and infused sugar together for an extra potent batch of medicated cookies.
You can also make cannabis edibles with cannabis concentrates like FECO.
First, check to see if your concentrate needs to be decarbed before consuming.
Some concentrates and extracts like distillate and FECO do not need to be decarbed first, while other concentrates like wax and shatter need to be decarbed before using in edibles.
Once the concentrate is ready to go, you will simply mix it in with the 1/2 cup of oil or butter as called for in this recipe.
Then prepare the recipe as described in the instructions below.
There’s nothing quite like the joy that is a perfect peanut butter cookie. Cannabis consumers appreciate the beauty of rich, nutty, sugary goodness as much as anyone – and perhaps far more so when the cookie is infused.
These cookies are everything an exceptional peanut butter cookie should be: soft, sweet, salty, decadent – and medicated. You’ll hardly notice the flavor of the THC, but you’ll feel its effects soon enough. Enjoy!
Cannabis-Infused Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
Yield: 24 cookies
½ C cannabutter
1 C crunchy peanut butter
2 T shortening
2 t vanilla
1 C flour
½ C sugar
½ C brown sugar
½ t baking soda
½ t baking powder
½ t sea salt
Additional sea salt and white sugar to finish
Optional: ½ C bacon bits (and in case you want to kick up the potency, we’ll just leave this infused bacon recipe here)
- Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease two baking sheets and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, stir flour, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together until combined.
- In a separate bowl, beat cannabutter, shortening, peanut butter, egg and vanilla together until thoroughly combined.
- Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients a little at a time with a wooden spoon until fully incorporated. Add the bacon bits at this time, if using.
- Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoonful onto the greased baking sheet. Using a fork with long tines, press each dough ball twice with the fork to flatten, creating a cross pattern on the top of each cookie. Sprinkle a mixture of one part sea salt and two parts sugar lightly over the tops of the cookies.
- Bake about 10-12 minutes, or until the cookie tops begin to crack. Do not overbake. Remove from oven and cool on a rack.
DIFFERENT DIETARY OPTIONS:
Cannabis-infused food doesn’t have to be junk food, but it can still be a tasty treat that you enjoy.
This also makes sure that your edibles don’t inadvertently contain something you happen to be allergic to or have had problems with in the past.
In other words, this recipe is accommodating to more diets than “normal” peanut butter cookies, whilst still being absolutely delicious and a great vehicle for your cannabis.
FOR GLUTEN-FREE COOKIES
If you are looking for a delicious gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe, we have had great success with using cassava flour. Swapping cassava flour for traditional all-purpose flour makes these cookies gluten-free.
These cookies can also work with the Paleo diet if you use seed butter in place of peanut butter (cassava is not a grain, but a tropical root vegetable).
You can generally get cassava flour at your local Whole Foods or even Wal-Mart.
Check your supermarket first though; with the growing popularity of the Paleo diet, it’s become a lot easier to get.
