Low Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies

imageedit_2_6061520922 (1).jpg

Though the weather is still warm, I thought a little baking wouldn’t be too uncomfortable.  So, it became “cookie time.”  These nut butter treats have no wheat flour, and no added sugar.  On this occasion I made them with crunchy peanut butter which was already in the larder, but almond butter works as well.

Ingredients:

  • Peanut Butter 1 Cup (Crunchy) [or similar nut butter of your preference]
  • Eggs 2 large
  • Truvia granulated 1/3 cup
  • Almond Flour/ground Almond 2 heaped Tbs
  • Baking Powder 1/4 tsp
  • Cinnamon to sprinkle

Method:

Preheat the oven to 175 C/ 350 F and cover a baking sheet with baking paper.  Then in a mixing bowl mix together the nut flour, sweetener, and baking powder.  In a separate bowl whisk the two eggs until frothy.  Add the eggs and nut butter to the dry ingredients and mix until even.  Roll the mixture into a dozen evenly sized balls.  Place the balls onto the baking sheet and press them flat with a fork in a crisscross pattern.  Place in the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with sweet cinnamon.  Let cool thoroughly before serving.
