Flour less Peanut Butter Cookies


These cookies are the healthiest snacks available and they are made at home with natural healthy ingredients. Peanut butter and eggs combine surprisingly well to form a dough that gets nice and crunchy when baked.

The final low carb peanut butter cookies recipe is even better that any shared here before.

Bake the low carb peanut butter cookies for 15-20 minutes, until they are golden. Do not forget to let them cool completely, so that they get super crunchy!

Calories 94 kcal

Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 15 minutes

Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 300 grams Peanut butter* (creamy, salted)
  • 2 large Eggs*
  • 110 grams Erythritol* (or any granulated sweetener; use 1/3 cup for less sweet cookies)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt (or 1/2 tsp if you like salty-sweet!)
  • 170 grams Peanuts (measured whole and shelled, then coarsely chopped)

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the peanut butter, egg, sweetener, vanilla, and salt in a food processor. Process until smooth, scraping down the sides if needed.
  • Pulse in the peanut pieces until just combined. (Don’t overmix – you want some pieces left for crunch.)
  • Use a medium cookie scoop to place balls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Press the cookie dough into the scoop tightly before releasing onto the sheet. Flatten using a fork in a criss-cross pattern. Between cookies, dip the fork in a cup with cold water and then wipe with a paper towel. (This will prevent sticking.)
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until very lightly golden. Cool completely before handling. Cookies will become crisp as they cool.

*Eggs: Please support your local organic free-range free-grazing egg farmer. You are supporting your local economy too.

*Peanuts: Look at the back label and the ingredients should ONLY read Peanuts and salt

*Erythritol is a sugar alcohol used as a low-calorie sweetener. It provides only about 6% of the calories found in an equal amount of sugar. About 10% of ingested erythritol is not absorbed into the blood and travels down to the colon. For this reason, a very high intake of erythritol may cause some digestive side effects. Erythritol does not raise blood sugar levels. This makes it an excellent sugar replacement for people with diabetes.
