Prep time
Total time
Crazy-delicious, this gluten-free PEANUT-BUTTER COOKIE SANDWICH RECIPE breaks all the rules because even the creamy frosting is healthy too! While standard buttercream frosting is LOADED WITH ICING SUGAR (typically 4 cups to 1 pound per batch), this delectable recipe is entirely free of cane sugar!
Recipe Type: Healthy Dessert
Special Diets: Cookies
Serves: 4 cups
  1. In a food processor, pulse all the frosting ingredients until creamy, scraping the edges very frequently (do not overprocess).
  2. Frost cookies immediately or refrigerate first to achieve desired consistency for spreading.
  3. Store any leftover cookie sandwiches in the freezer (if there are any!), then allow them to soften 10-15 minutes before serving.
***To get coconut cream from a can (the method used in YUM for reasons of practicality), chill can(s) of full-fat premium organic coconut milk in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. When you remove the tin from the refrigerator, be sure not to shake it. Open the tin carefully, then spoon out the thick cream from the top of the can and place it in a bowl. Save the coconut liquid below to use in smoothies or other recipes.
