Candice's Peanut Butter Cookies with Almond Flour
I saw this on her site..

Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies(42)


3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup natural peanut butter(sugar free, I use Kirkland organic brand)
1 cup splenda(or sweetener of your choice)
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups ground almonds/almond meal/almond flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda


Preheat oven to 375F

In small bowl combine ground almonds, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In mixing bowl add butter and peanut butter. Mix on high with paddle attachment until smooth.
Add splenda and mix until fluffy. Scrap bowl down.
Add eggs one at a time with mixer running then add vanilla. Scrap down bowl.
Last add the almond flour mixture. Mix just until combined.

You can either bake right away or store dough in the refrigerator in airtight container until a little more firm. You can also pre-scoop all the dough and refrigerate or freeze what you do not want to bake right away.
Line cookie sheet with parchment paper, or nonstick baking liner.
Scoop with a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop(#60), if you donít have one,~ scoop 1 Tablespoon then roll in your hand to make ball(if you are doing this way you will definitely need to let dough firm up a bit in refrigerator). Lightly press down cookie with a fork making a crisscross pattern.

Bake at 375F for 10-12 minutes

This was the recipe i planned on trying when I add LC Cookies into my diet. Although I wonder how they'd be with peanut flour too!

I wonder how this would be with almond butter? That is what I have. Maybe I will try.....

I was thinking the same thing Dawn. I'm saving my almond butter for bread though. Haha

Let us know if you try it with almond butter. :)

I took some of the cookies to my diabetic dad yesterday and he LOVED them and was so happy. My husband always takes my low carb sweets to work to share- and everyone loved these. I am glad I tried the recipe- I will be making these again tomorrow. And they do not crumble!

These sound great! Looking for more ways to use up all the peanut butter I bought at Costco- forgot I had just bought two huge jars the time before :p

Thank for bumping :)

Could you please tell me if your carb counts are with powdered Splenda?

Thank you,

The carb counts would be for the ingredients as written. That would be the granular Splenda.
