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. Ruth, I didn’t even think of that. So glad it’s good for two holidays!

    Jay, thanks! That made my day!

  2. I made and enjoyed the Flour less Chocolate peanut butter cookies. They are easy to make. I made them in my toaster oven.
    They are definitely a keeper.
    Thank you Kalyn for giving us so many great recipes for South Beach. You are awesome!!!!!!!!!

    Jay Reaser

  3. Kalyn, thanks for something I can make for Passover – only 2 months away and I’m already thinking of flourless recipes.

  4. Anonymous, this recipe is exactly how I made the cookies so it should be fine for you. I’m not sure high altitude adjustments are even need for this type of baking, but I’m definitely not a baking expert.

  5. Thanks for this! I live in Denver – do you bake using “high altitude” modifications? SLC is higher up, yes? Thanks again – can’t wait to try them!

  6. I will try these out for sure. We’ve got a big thing about what’s the contents in packets over here, so I’m with you on that one.

  7. Oh yum! These look wonderful Kalyn…on or off South Beach! 🙂

  8. mmm.very nice.l want to try this niceness.

  9. Peanut butter and chocolate are two of my most favorites. So, I know this recipe has to be great.

  10. My goodness — cookies on Kalyn’s Kitchen! Now you’ve inspired me to do some baking. It’s always great to have some healthier cookies on hand.

  11. YUMYUMYUM. I’ve made similar cookies before, but without the chocolate. Can’t believe I didn’t think of this! Thanks for sharing!

  12. How I want to taste those cookies! But, I am spending 3 weeks in a residence hotel in CO and don’t want to buy all the ingredients. I will certainly try it when I return to OK. Thanks for the recipe. I love chocolate and my husband loves peanut butter so it will make for a happy marriage.

  13. I can't wait to try these cookies & I'm not even on a diet. (Not that I shouldn't be..) sigh..

  14. I can’t see why they wouldn’t freeze well. Good idea! I need to put the rest of mine in the freezer before I eat any more of them!

  15. The amount of sugar in these is so small I wouldn’t worry about it. I’m going to give these a try – I really watch my sugar intake but I do like something sweet once in a while. These look so good. I wonder if these cookies would freeze well and I could just take out a few at a time!

  16. I’m glad people like the sound of these. I think even people who eat sugar would like them; at least my contractor and his teenage son gave them two thumbs up! Maggie, haven’t heard that, and the bottle of Mexican Vanilla I have is half gone, and doesn’t seem to be hurting me. But of course regular vanilla would be fine.

  17. I’ve been making the PB cookies that have just 1 C PB, 1 C. Slenda and an egg. They are excellent but I’m ready for a little bit of a change. I’m so glad to have this recipe! I’ll be making this one for sure. 🙂

  18. These look very interesting – and delicious – I am always on the lookout for gluten free cookies for my celiac niece! unfortunately my valentine loves cookies full of fat and sugar but would be interested to see what he thought of these 🙂

  19. This sounds really good Kalyn! I think I remember hearing something bad about Mexican vanilla recently though… something about being contaminated? I don’t remember exactly – but just giving you a heads up.

  20. These look great!

    Might have to try once I am on The Beach for a longer amount of time!
