Ingredient Notes

  • 1 cup sugar: I use white sugar, but you could substitute cannasugar
  • ½ cup cannabutter: Buy my Bliss Cannabutter or make your own. This should be softened to room temperature for the best results
  • ½ cup peanut butter: Natural, creamy, or chunky – your choice. Or try cannabis-infused peanut butter for an extra potency kick
  • 1 egg: for consistency
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour: white, all-purpose, AP flour works best in this recipe
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda: don’t confuse this for baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt: kosher salt or table salt works

Note: a complete list of ingredients with amounts and printable instructions is located in the recipe card below.

Storage Instructions

You can store these cookies in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to a week. You can also store them in a sealed container in the fridge where they will last up to two weeks, or store them in a freezer-safe bag for up to 6 or more months in the freezer.

Alternate Infusion Options

You can’t make cannabis peanut butter cookies without one of the staple recipes important for every cannabis kitchen: coconut oilcannabutter, sugar, or concentrates.

You can use any optionn 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:

Again, it is your choice which one you want to make, both work well in this recipe.

Cannabis Sugar

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.

Cannabis Concentrates

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 butter as called for in this recipe. Then prepare the recipe as described in the instructions below.

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, or you can . Check your supermarket first though; with the growing popularity of the Paleo diet, it’s become a lot easier to get.

Gluten-Free Recipe Note

To make these cookies gluten free, use the same recipe below with the following changes:

  • Add another egg for a total of 2 beaten eggs
  • Swap 1 cup cassava flour with ¼ reserved for the traditional all-purpose flower
  • When following the instructions, only add 1 cup of cassava flour at first. Add the reserved ¼ by the tablespoon, as needed, to get the right consistency in the dough

For Dairy-Free Cookies

This recipe is dairy-free if you use cannabis coconut oil rather than cannabutter.

Don’t like (or can’t eat) peanut butter? You can also make this recipe with homemade hemp seed butter.

  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • Flatten the dough balls once with a fork, then turn the fork 90° and flatten again to create a crosshatch pattern.

    I’ve made this recipe using cannabutter several times now and I’m always happy with the results! Thanks!

  2. Hi Meredith! Thank you so much for commenting. We love hearing about successes from our readers! ? Happy Baking!

  3. First timer: 1/2 cup cannabutter makes to strong of a cookie, for me now I have 18 cookies and over a cup of cannabutter to try to use in 6 months.

  4. Hi Bruce. You can freeze the cookies for longer shelf life and as far as the cannabutter goes, you can add more butter into it and each serving won’t be as strong. If you add a cup of non-infused butter to a cup of cannabutter, the cannabutter will be half as strong than it originally was. Make sense?

  5. 4 stars
    I loved the simplicity of this recipe. However, I did have to tweak the amount of the ingredients because I found the dough a bit dry when I followed the exact recipe. Maybe I needed more butter idk but the cookies turned out excellent!

  6. Hi Molli. We’re glad you love the recipe after making a small adjustment. Thank you for your feedback!
