Low-Carb Peanut Butter Cookies

low carb peanut butter cookies

I LOVE to bake.

I also REALLY LOVE peanut butter..

 

I love peanut butter in every form. Crunchy, smooth, salty, sweet, I don’t judge peanut butter based on what size, shape, or flavour it comes in. Wanna add some honey? Yes please. Wanna pair it with carrots? Sure why not. Name your pairing, I’ll dig it.

Therefore, baking and peanut butter are two things that CANNOT fail to impress when combined together, right?

(… I’ve actually had some peanut butter baking DISASTERS before, but let’s not talk about that…)

Low-Carb Peanut Butter Cookies

low-carb, kept friendly, gluten free peanut butter cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy (salted) peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sweetener
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup + 2 TBSP almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Instructions

  1. Combine all of your ingredients in order in a mixing bowl. Stir together until you form a thick dough.
  2. Scoop 1-2 TBSP out to at a time to form into 1-inch balls on a lined cookie pan, about ✌🏼2 inches apart. Flatten each ball with a fork in a criss-cross pattern.
  3. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes, until the edges of the cookies just start to brown (I always take them out when they don’t look ready, so they stay soft for the next few days). Let them cool enough to not burn your mouth on them, and enjoy!

Notes

☝🏻Side note: I use a no-calorie stevia blend, but monk fruit or any other low-cal sweetener works here too. If you want to use some kind of real sugar that’s fine, it’ll just change your nutrition of each cookie. ☝🏻☝🏻Side-side note: If the dough is too dry to roll into balls, add a little milk alternative. If it’s too wet you can’t handle it, add more almond meal.
