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 Bake for Christmas 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.
