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.
- 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
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.
