I've had a hankering for some cookies lately.
Not the low-carb kinds that taste like a cake-ie instead of a cook-ie. ☺
I tried a peanut butter cookie recipe that was raved about on the internet, but the texture was all wrong: eggy, cakey. Not what I was looking for.
So. I blame Trim Healthy Mama for all of this, because before using THM, I didn't really adapt recipes. I might add an ingredient or leave an ingredient out once in a while, but mixmaster I was not.
Until now. Now, it's almost an everyday occurrence, to tweak recipes to make them work for my personal tastebuds, which sometimes can be fussy.
Here's my version of a delicious, peanut butter cookie that actually has the texture of a real cookie.
Yummy goodness! I know you're gonna enJOY this recipe!
Low-Carb Peanut Butter Cookies ("S" recipe for Trim Healthy Mamas)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper, or use a Silpat baking sheet on top of cookie sheets.
Combine all ingredients in medium-to-large sized bowl by hand, or with hand mixer.
Place heaping tablespoonfuls of dough onto the parchment paper or Silpat baking sheet. Place two additional tablespoons of erythritol or Truvia into a small dish. With a glass or cup, flatten tablespoons of dough with oiled bottom of glass dipped in erythritol/Truvia.
Bake for 8 minutes; rotate cookie trays and bake for an additional 4-10 minutes until golden brown on edges. Let cool on cookie sheets; remove and store in sealed container.
