This is a healthier and low carb version of peanut butter cookies!  Not to mention low sugar and gluten free!  But you’d never know, because they are really good!

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes 32 Cookies

1 egg
1 egg white (I used from a whole egg vs the carton)
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp vanilla or unflavored whey protein powder
1/2 cup Krisda stevia baking formula or 12 packets of stevia
1/2 cup almond meal (ground almonds in food processor)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup all natural peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 F

In a large bowl, lightly beat egg & egg white. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Form little balls with a teaspoon or your hands and place on a lightly sprayed or parchment lined baking sheet.  Press with a fork.

Bake for 9 minutes. Balls will puff up and lightly brown. Cool for a few minutes before eating

    I had to share: I made these at 5am. Don’t do that 🙂 i sleepily ended up putting two quarter cups pb since I’d been using that for the dry ingredients. The cookies puffed (on the right track. ..) then flattened (oops). I had added some ground chia. Perhaps that’s why they held together in the end. The kids love them but I was wondering why did they not look like yours lol!! Anyway, that proves a versatile recipe to me, thanks for sharing your work!
