Clean Peanut Butter Cookies for Two!

I wanted a treat to eat while we watch the Olympic closing ceremonies this afternoon, and naturally peanut butter is the first thing that came to mind. I looked around for a decent recipe, but I either didn’t have all of the ingredients or wasn’t convinced they would be delicious enough. I decided to wing it!

Well my friends, they turned out exactly like those little Kraft ones we used to eat that were made with nothing but PB, sugar and eggs.

I was not expecting this recipe to turn out first try, so I kept the batch small and didn’t take many pictures while I made them. I am too excited to wait until I make them again, so I’m working with what I’ve got!

Clean Peanut Butter Cookies for Two

Makes 4 cookies

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp organic peanut butter (I always buy crunchy!)
  • 2 tbsp whole wheat pastry flour (Bulk Barn or Bob’s Red Mill if you can find it!)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp liquid egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 cup xylitol
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

tag team, back again.

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Combine all ingredients and mix well.
  3. Form into 4 balls and place on cookie sheet (I use a silicone liner to avoid sticking and use of extra oils).
  4. Using a fork, press down on cookies to create cross-hatching effect.
  5. Bake for approximately 12 minutes, or until firm and golden brown on the edges.
Nutrition per cookie:

I would love to tell you about the texture and the taste once these cool down, but Josh and I inhaled them within 12 seconds of me snapping the picture. The closing ceremonies didn’t stand a chance.

MAKE. THESE. NOW.

 

Enjoy 🙂

  1. These look amazing!!! Can’t wait to make them 😀

  2. I can’t wait to try these. We do not have any whole wheat flour…maybe oat flour would work…hum…They sound amazing!!

    • They ARE amazing! Oat flour might work okay, but it might make for a more muffin-like consistency, not sure. Since there is more PB than flour, it could actually work out fine! Let me know how it goes if you try it out!
