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.

I understand you wanting to hold out with the almond flour. It's expensive! If you are in Portland sometime, you might want to consider going to Bob's Red Mill outlet in Milwaukee. In their open bins of flours, their almond flour is at least half the price of what I pay in our grocery stores here. It seems like it's around $5.50 per pound instead of $10. Nice! I keep a big bag of it in the freezer so it will last me between trips to the big city. :)

About your Almond Flour ~ is there a difference grinding up almonds in my Blend Tec vs buying Almond Flour? I find using my Blend Tec is cheaper.

Could I use vanilla extract instead of the sugar free vanilla syrup and maybe increase the sweetner amount? I've never found a flavored sugar free syrup that was sweetened with stevia and I prefer not to use splenda.

I would like to know, too. I would like to make these today without waiting for an order to arrive from Amazon. ;) Can you sub vanilla extract??
The problem with only subbing vanilla extract is that it won't be enough moisture like with the 6 Tbsp. of DaVinci syrup. You wouldn't want to add 6 Tbsp. of vanilla to this recipe! Yikes. However, you may have other options, like THM-style pancake syrup, or something like that, which you can add instead.

Has anyone tried subbing in defatted peanut flour in place of actual peanut butter? Either partial or full amount? I was just thinking this might allow a person to have two guilt free cookies :)
