The Best THC-Infused Peanut Butter Cookies: Marijuana Recipes
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned veteran when it comes to making cannabis edibles, cannabis peanut butter cookies are the perfect place to start. Simple and easy to make, these cookies are essentially a staple within the marijuana edible division of the cannabis industry. That strong herbal flavor that weed leaves behind on your palate can sometimes make a recipe taste a bit weird, but thankfully, peanut butter is overpowering enough to cover that up, making your eating experience much more pleasant.
Before proceeding with the recipe for marijuana peanut butter cookies, you must make cannabutter, which is widely used for all sorts of cannabis edibles. In order for your edibles to give you that “high” feeling, the weed used for your cannabutter will need to go through the decarboxylation process. This means your raw cannabis has to be heated up to activate the THCA cannabinoids that it contains and turn it into the psychoactive compound THC, which is what gives you that intoxicating effect from weed. Make sure to pay attention to the potency of your cannabutter as this will also determine the potency of your cannabutter peanut butter cookies. If you don’t know how to figure out the correct dosage for your recipe or just don’t want to do the math, we have provided an online calculator for your convenience.
Pot Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
- 1 cup desired peanut butter
- 2 1/2 cups flour

- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup softened cannabutter
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

- Roll the dough into 1-inch balls, placing them onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each of the balls with a fork to make a crisscross pattern.
- Bake the balls in the preheated oven for approximately 10 minutes or until the weed peanut butter cookies are a golden brown.

Cannabis Peanut Butter Cookies
Are you interested in using cannabis to improve your health?
Many of my students prefer cannabis edibles for the simple reason that they are better for you than smoking (you avoid those nasty lung problems), but a lot of cannabis-infused recipes out there can be bad for you in other ways.
If you’re seeking the benefits of cannabis, rather than to get high, then it’s important that you eat a healthy diet. That is where our cannabis recipes come in.
Theoretically, you could transform any peanut butter cookie recipe into a cannabis-infused peanut butter cookie recipe by simply substituting cannabis-infused oil or cannabis-infused butter for regular oil or butter.
However, that may not get you the best overall results.
Why Eat your Cannabis?
Consuming edibles will result in you absorbing cannabinoids more slowly and thoroughly, which is preferred for many people.
This is particularly important if you are using CBD for its health effects, like to manage anxiety. Also, you don’t end up smelling like cannabis and can enjoy your edibles in front of others without people realizing you’re medicating.
You can buy edibles, including healthy ones, but as with so much else, it’s cheaper to make your own. Just make sure to keep them in a separate jar.
Also, be aware that because of the slowed absorption, if you’re eating edibles to get high some people have been known to overdose because they think nothing is happening, so they have just a little more, a little more, then pow.

Despite that, edibles are generally better for you than smoking. However, if your edibles are chock full of sugar, are those gummies (no nutritional value there!), or contain ingredients that are bad for you, then you’re doing it wrong.
Cannabis should not be the healthiest ingredient in your edibles, but it often is. Cannabis gummies are one of the most popular ways to indulge, especially recreationally, and we all know about candy…
To enjoy your CBD in a healthier manner, consider making your own edibles, including your own cannabis coconut oil or cannabutter (it’s not that hard).
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.
Cannabis-infused food doesn’t have to be junk food, but it can still be a tasty treat that you enjoy.
Gluten-Free Peanut Butter 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 order it online. Check your supermarket first though; with the growing popularity of the Paleo diet, it’s become a lot easier to get.
Gluten-Free Cookie 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
Dairy-Free Cannabis Cookie Recipe
This recipe is dairy-free if you use cannabis coconut oil rather than cannabutter. You can always adjust the recipe as needed if you do not need to be dairy or gluten-free.
If you want the full effect, don’t forget to decarboxylate your raw cannabis first. You can also use this oil as a substitute for cannabutter in any edibles recipe.
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 CBD or cannabis.
Again, you can use any peanut butter cookie recipe, but this recipe is healthier, especially for people with dietary restrictions
Don’t like (or can’t eat) peanut butter? You can also make this recipe with homemade hemp seed butter.
