Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies
Cookies! I love the smell of baking cookies. I used to love coming home from school as a kid and find that mom had baked. She had two really good cookie recipes that I still love. They were a nice butter cookie and a chocolate cookie with chocolate chips.
She called the chocolate ones “Paul’s Cookies” because they were always my younger brother’s favorite. We still call them that to this day. I just called them both my cookies because I loved them each in all their glory.
Actually, I don’t think I have ever met a cookie that I didn’t like. I wanted to have this recipe out on the blog back before Christmas but with all the rush of the season, I simply didn’t get to it. But, I am sure you will enjoy them just as much as you would have then. After all, cookies are a perfect treat all year round, right? Right!
This version of peanut butter cookies is low carb, sugar-free, gluten-free and a Trim Healthy Mama “S” treat. Isn’t it great that we can eat cookies as part of our journey to getting healthy? As with any other food, eat them responsibly. Over doing it on treats, even low carb ones can still add up to less weight loss. I always feel a bit sad for those that choose an eating plan that would cut out cookies though. Can you imagine? No cookies, no way!

Blunt honesty is coming in my next statement, so be ready. I can become a serious grumpy girl and may even seem a bit dangerous… like a hungry bear when denied cookies or any dessert for that matter. Am I alone in my honesty? Surely not!
Okay maybe I am, but don’t worry, my family is safe from my grumpiness because Mama Bear’s cookie jar will always be full now.
A great addition to this cookie would be some low carb chocolate chips like Lily’s. Oh man, we all know how well chocolate goes with peanut butter! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe.

A simple and delicious low carb peanut butter cookie.
- 1 stick softened butter
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 1/4 cup of Pyure Sweetener
- 2 cups of finely ground almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
- pinch of salt
- This recipe makes about 24 small cookies, with a serving size being 2 cookies.
- Cream your butter, egg, peanut butter and sweetener together in your mixing bowl.
- Add in your almond flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt and combine well.
- Let cookie dough rest in the fridge for 15-30 minutes.
- Us a small cookie scoop to get the cookie dough and then roll it into small balls. The larger your balls are the few cookies your recipe will make.
Place each dough ball on a sprayed cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. I am able to fit about 12 per baking sheet.
- Spray a fork lightly with cooking spray and press the fork down on the top of each ball. Repeat this step with the fork going the cross directions also.
I find that making these cookies flatter helps them have a more crisp texture after they cook and cool completely.
- Bake the cookies in a 350 degree oven for about 12-14 minutes.
- When the cookies are done, let them cool for just a few minutes on the baking tray before transferring them to a plate or cooling rack.
- These cookies are light and delicate but I love the texture. I prefer to keep mine in the fridge but you don't have too.
