These delicious Peanut Butter Cookies provide a sweet tasting snack. Whilst I find eating low carb does not actually leave me needing to snack often, it is still nice now and again to be able to have a “biscuit” with your cuppa. I tried a range of different ingredients but often found cookies or biscuits dry, that was until I found these little beauties. Net carbs 1g per cookie (appx.5cm diameter).
I am not sure which website I found them on so apologies for not citing but I have been making these for a couple of years now so I do not need to refer to a recipe, they are that simple.
Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies
Quick and easy delicious snack for your lunch box or to harbour that sweet craving.
- 170 Gms Smooth Peanut Butter
- 1 Tsp Water
- 1 Egg
- 1 Tsp Baking Powder
- 2 Tbsp Sweetener (Your preference)
Pre-heat oven to 180C, Gas 4
In a large bowl thoroughly mix the peanut butter, water, baking powder and sweetener together.
Add the egg and mix really well ensuring all ingredients are incorporated together. You should have quite an oily but manipulative type of dough.
Divide equally into 8, roll each piece into a ball and place evenly onto a baking sheet covered with either a silicon mat or non-stick baking paper. Use a fork to pat your cookies flat, pressing out to about 5 cm diameter.
Cook for about 10 minutes - but check after 7 as they cook quickly and can catch around the edges. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire cooling
