Best Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe is the best tasting peanut butter cookie I have made
on LC. Going to double the batch today. My tweak is cutting
up an 86% Lindt bar and adding at the end of recipe.

Peanut Butter Cookies
Maria
1/2-cup butter or coconut oil
1/2-cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup Truvia
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup peanut flour
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Cream the butter, peanut butter, sweetener and vanilla together. Blend for 3 minutes. Add in the egg and mix well. Sift the baking soda, peanut flour and salt together. Slowly add the peanut flour mixture to the butter mixture. Stir well to combine. Stir in the chopped nuts (if using).

Take off 1-inch pieces of the dough, roll into a ball and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Press tops with fork tines. Bake at 325 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden but the center is still soft. Allow to cool for 2 minutes on the sheet then remove to a rack to continue cooling. Serves 24

NUTRITIONAL COMPARISON: per serving
Using white flour and sugar = 120 calories, 13.2 carbs, 0.5g fiber
Using peanut flour and Truvia = 86 Calories, 2.4 carbs, 0.8g fiber

these sound really good! couple of questions:

did you have to powder the truvia first? I've never baked with it, but when I use it for CO candies, it seems to stay granular.

And your CO, is that 1/2 cup solid or did you melt it and then measure? Or have you only tried using butter?

Thanks!

Peanut Butter Cookies

Hi,

I'm making more of them today as a birthday gift for a diabetic friend.

I've only used butter and I used the Truvia granular. I am going to
add a bit of powdered erythritol for added sweetness. The chocolate
Lindt bar 86% needs a bit more sweetness.

Hope you that have peanut flour try this. You can add crushed
nuts to your recipe. I did the first time.

Barbo, where do you get peanut flour? I have been looking for great pb cookie recipes everywhere. You are the BEST. P.S. I am converting from agave to stevia/erythritol tonight.

Nm... saw that netrition sells it! Awesome.

JacksMixedTape, have you made them with the stevia/erythritol yet? What were the results? What were the measurements?

I'm definitely ordering the peanut flour!

These sound real good, Barbo. I love stuff with peanut butter, but my husband won't eat anything with it. He dislikes peanuts cooked in anything......but eats them roasted by the handsful as a snack. Go figure. I may try to trim down your recipe to an individual or two-only recipe.

Peanut Butter Cookies

I've got new peanut flour from Netrition this week. Nice and fresh!
It's the same brand that Trader Joe's used to carry.

Was gonna make them today but it was rather warm out and
I didn't want to heat up the oven. Even made dinner in the
crock pot to avoid heating things up.
They will now have sf choco chips in this new batch.
Gonna make them a bit bigger. We have one treat with our decaff
in the evening, I keep them frozen. We just really think these
are good.

If I get really brave, I was thinking of using the flour for
fried chicken?? Am I nutz? Peanuts are so good in chicken
curry, Thai food etc.

Now that our power is back on, I now have running water again, have cleaned up my yard covered with leaves, sticks, and branches, I can get back to LC business! Barbo did you use the Truvia and erythritol combination? If so, how much did you use?

Thanks for this recipe! I used almond flour bc that's what I had and I can't purchase more "low carb baking stuff"! (my cupboards are overflowing). I've never used peanut flour, but my dough was nothing like dough. It was VERY runny so I added another 1/2-1 cup of almond flour. It was still less dough like and very sticky/wet. I plunked big chunks on sheets and cooked it away (thinking this was going to be a disaster, lol). They came out looking like a cross between a cake patty and a scone. The middle is almost moist/chewy w/a cookie hard exterior.

I love them! And the high carb family does too

Thanks for sharing this.

Does anyone think coconut flour or carbquick would work instead of peanut flour? I happen to have them on hand.

I was wondering about coconut flour, too, as that's what I have on hand. I would think that it would work better than the almond flour as someone posted that made a thin batter. The coconut flour seems to be quite drying in the couple things I've used it for.

Just got my huge Netrition order yesterday. Just like Christmas! Low and behold there was peanut flour, ordered just for these cookies. Now, like hockey_gal, where am I going to put all of this stuff? I'll have to have a special closet built just to store it! Oh well, now the possibilities are endless for baking and cooking.

LOL I had to laugh Tilly, because my baking pantry is also crammed, right to the front edges of the shelves with all my canisters of odd-ball baking ingredients. Really frustrates hubby when he wants REAL sugar for guest's coffee or something. LOL We have to dig awhile to find that.

buttoni - my DH gets annoyed when he makes tea that he can't find the real sugar either.

My cupboards are overflowing bc I do keep all the high carb "regular" cooking ingredients with all my other low carb stuff. I also had overhead cupboards removed in my kitchen so I could see the beautiful view of my bay window. But that doesn't help with space issues!

I'm planning to make the PB cookies again and now you have me considering coconut flour...hmm...but I love these so I'm sticking w/almond flour

Finding room for low carb ingredients

Guess what I did the first of this year for my New Year's gift?

Went out and bought myself see through vinyl (I suppose) cannisters
with nice fittings to click them shut. I labelled them all and lined
them up against one kitchen wall, right next to my Kitchen Aid mixer.
Even my LC cocoa mix is there. I got rid of everything that wasn't
going to be used for LC baking except for the sugar for our guests coffee.
It's the best present I ever gave myself. I can whip up most all of our
goodies in minutes. I even through out all my old spices and herbs,
baking powders, sodas etc. for all new for the New Year 2011.
Have all of our homemade bake mixes out and labelled, our CarbQuick too.
Do yourselves a big favor if you are serious low carber. Make this
a priority. You will be so happy you did.
