I have only tried making this recipe with natural peanut butter, the type that only has ONE ingredient: roasted peanuts (the type you have to stir to combine the oil with the peanut butter and contains no extras on the ingredient list like no added oil, salt, or sugar (or anything else!). If you use a different type of peanut butter, your results may be different than mine.
I also tested this recipe with brown sugar and the results were great, but I found that the version with coconut sugar produced a slightly chewier cookie.
The cookies may seem under baked when you take out of the oven because they'll be very soft. Not to worry, they firm up as they cool. Be sure to leave them to cool on the cookie sheet for at least 15 minutes before transferring to your cooling rack. If you remove them too quickly, they will fall apart.
