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 (affiliate link), 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 (affiliate link) 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 see all the cookie recipes I’ve been working on!)

How to Make Flourless Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies:

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe.)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/170C and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. We used the KitchenAid Stand Mixer (affiliate link) for these cookies, but you can use a hand mixer if that’s what you have.
  2. Put eggs, Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) or sweetener of your choice, baking powder, vanilla,  and salt into the mixer bowl and beat until it’s all combined.
  3. Add the Almond Flour (affiliate link) and cocoa powder and beat until it’s well mixed into the other ingredients.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Use a fork to press down each cookie so they’re about 1/2 inch thick.
  7. Bake 16-18 minutes, or until the top feels slight firm and the cookies look done. Let them cool 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. So glad you like them; thanks for taking time to let me know!

  2. Found this recipe via Pinterest, and I'm so glad I did! It's perfect for me (diabetic) and a friend (celiac). Made them today for a Christmas get together, and I'm excited to share them with my friends. Thanks so much for sharing… 🙂

  3. I hope you enjoy the cookies. Hope they are still okay for your mom with the flour.

  4. Oh my gosh, if the finished product tastes half as good as the batter my diabetc mom and I are in for a treat. Not sure you understand what a portion is, I got eight "normal size" cookies out of these. But then again I am a tremendous eater. Also lacking almond meal I had to sub regular flour. So took some experimenting. Thank you, super yummy!!!

  5. That might work, or perhaps some brand of peanut butter have more oil than others (I'm not sure, but I haven't had that problem.)

  6. Great tasting cookies. Couldn't take off the oil as it was so incorporated into the butter, wondering if I should have left the butter in a sieve for some time because the cookies turned out too oily :/ Thanks for sharing 🙂

  7. I haven't tried this without nuts so I think you'd have to experiment with other butters she can eat (sunflower?) or choose another recipe.

  8. seems delicious just wanted to know what to do for my daughter with a nut allergy? thanks

  9. Thanks for that; so glad you're enjoying the blog. Don't know if you know that I am a former teacher, so maybe that's why my blog resonates with you!

  10. Kalyn, as a librarian, I see lots of blogs but your is the best for what I am looking for. I am a newbee but love what I see so far, the pictures, the recipes, the thought behind the messages: I feel like I have found a lost family member. So thank you so much for all the hard work you but into this.

  11. Mama Allie, That is about the same number of calories as a teaspoon of regular sugar, but the carbs are less. Will have to check it out. Glad you like the blog.

  12. Have you heard of Turbinado Sugar? It's got 15 calories and only 1g. of carbs per teaspoon. I used it in your recipe instead of the brown sugar. Yummy!

    I'm so happy to have found this blog!

    Keep up the awesome work Kalyn!

  13. Oh my these look delicious Have you tried PB2? I have some in my cupboard and I'm thinking if I mix it up first so the consistency is similar to peanut butter, it would work beautifully in these cookies. It would be a big reduction in fat, and my experience with it in cooking is that the taste difference is minimal.

  14. I've heard of PB2, but haven't tried it myself. Would love to hear how it works in the cookies if you try it.

  15. Ebru, I'm not sure about replacing all the almond meal with flaxseed. I think the flaxseed would have a much stronger flavor. You could certainly use partly flaxseed though. I may be wrong though, let me know if you try it.

  16. I've been on South Beach for almost 4 months now. I tried some dessert recipes with no flour/sugar and they did not turn out well (except mint meringue cookies). I found your website today. Thanks for the great recipes. I'm intrigued by this recipe and I'll definitely try. Do you think we could replace almond meal with grounf flaxseed? I made apple crisp with ground flaxseed (instead of flour)and it turned out yummy!

  17. Bless you for these, Kalyn!

  18. Yeah! My littlest girl can’t eat wheat, so these are PERFECT for her! Great timing, too, for a Valentines Day treat! Thanks!

  19. I’m going to try these out, Kalyn. They sound great.

    As for the high altitude question someone else brought up–it doesn’t usually affect cookies. Cakes and other baked goods are more affected by altitude. If in doubt, just raise the oven temp about 25 degrees and bake cookies for less time. The real problem is that they might turn out drier because of sugar, but that probably wouldn’t happen with this recipe anyway since they are low sugar cookies.

  20. These look great. Try them with agave instead of Splenda. I just might do that.
