Grain-free peanut-butter blossoms (2-ways)!

These cookies are one of my favorites at the holidays---this version uses no butter/oil, no refined sugar, no grains and can even be paleo if you'd rather almond butter! I made half of them "Peanut Butter Cup" by topping with peanut butter cups and the other half "Fluffernutter" by topping them with marshmallows. What would you go for first?
