These cookies are true to their name. The flavor of the peanuts shines through and isn't masked by other ingredients. They are crispy on the outside, and chewy in the center. I tested them with both sucanat and coconut sugar. The batch with coconut sugar is slightly less sweet. My bet is that any granulated sweetener will work here, such as maple sugar or turbinado sugar. My preference is to always use coconut sugar which is a low-glycemic sweetener. Sunflower butter is another option for those of you who need to eat nut-free.
