And the cookie updates are continuing with these Flourless Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies! As I explained with the first update cookie recipe, and then mentioned again, the wonderful Kara and I are doing a little holiday project to update a few favorite cookie recipes for the holidays.

We’re experimenting with cookies that previously used a combination of Stevia-in-the-Raw Granulated Sweetener and brown sugar and replacing the brown sugar with Golden Monkfruit Sweetener, making it a sugar-free cookie. Many of my earliest cookies also used almond meal, which we’re replacing with more widely available blanched almond flour as well.

It’s been quite a cookie-baking spree, but I promise this blog is not going to turn into nothing but cookies for the month of December! But for anyone who’s avoiding sugar and wants to bake a few cookies for the holidays, I hope you enjoy having more sugar-free options. (Check out Six Delicious Sugar-Free and Flourless Cookies to Bake for Christmas to see all the cookie recipes I’ve been working on!)

Preheat the oven to 350F/170C and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. We used the KitchenAid Stand Mixer for these cookies, but you can use a hand mixer if that’s what you have. Put eggs, Stevia-in-the-Raw Granulated SweetenerLakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener, (or sweeteners of your choice), baking powder, vanilla,  and salt until it’s all combined. Add the Almond Flour and cocoa powder and beat until it’s well mixed into the other ingredients.

Add the room-temperature peanut butter and beat until that’s all combined. I used chunky peanut butter, but if you don’t like the look of little peanut pieces in the cookies you can use smooth peanut butter. Use a tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop out small pieces of dough, roll them into small balls and place on the parchment paper on the baking sheet.

Use a fork to press down each cookie so they’re about 1/2 inch thick. Bake 16-18 minutes, or until the top feels slight firm and the cookies look done. Let them cook for a few minutes; they will get more firm as they cool.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Everything used here is a low-glycemic ingredient, but the cookies are relatively high in fat, so this is probably a “once in a while treat” for the South Beach Diet, and the use of almond meal would make this limited to Phase 2 or 3. These cookies should be approved for most other low-carb diet plans.

  1. I love the sound of your FLOURLESS SUGAR FREE PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE COOKIES I just want to ask 1 question because I am confused 1 ingredient in recipe is 3 quarter cup blanched almond flour. Is almond flour not flour.

    • Hi Bruce,
      Almond “flour” is a product that’s made of finely ground almonds, with a texture that resembles flour but doesn’t have any wheat. Most stores sell it in the nutrition department, or you can buy it here.

  2. artificial sweeteners (stevia, splenda, etc. ) are A-bad for you, and B-do not qualify as no sugar baking. Use real ingredients like fruit or dates. 

    • There is no mention of Splenda in this recipe, and the two sweeteners I suggest are both not artificial sweeteners. And fruit and dates both have sugar, so that wouldn’t qualify as no-sugar baking.

      I think you need to educate yourself on this topic before you start criticizing. And my main philosophy about food is that everyone gets to make their own food choices. That has always been my policy on this site and always will be, so comments like this aren’t really welcome here.

  4. Can you substitute Truvia for stevia in the raw and monkfruit and anyone know the conversions? Thanks!

  5. HI are cacao and cocoa the same? interchangeable? Same question, could we use almond butter instead of peanut butter? Thanks

    • I think that cacao powder will be the same as cocoa powder for baking but I would google it to make sure. Almond butter will work as far as the properties of the recipe, but the flavor will be a little different of course. I haven’t tried it that way, but I think it should still be good.

  6. Your directions do not say when to add the 3 T cocoa powder. They should definitely be added prior to incorporating the peanut butter. Otherwise, they are hard to incorporate into the mixture.

    I love your site and look forward to trying many of the recipes when I get your emails.

    • Oh my gosh, thanks for catching that. I edited to fix; you’re right about adding it before the peanut butter. It should be added with the almond meal. Glad you are enjoying the recipes!
