Alex's Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

By: Alex Liska
 This recipe is sugar-free and diabetic-friendly! It's great for those following a carb-reduced diet! Ingredients are All-Natural! I recommend  using PureVia Stevia for baking because it doesn't have a bitter aftertaste.

Ingredients:
-1/3 cup butter, softened
-1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter
-9-10 envelopes PureVia Stevia (Not sure what the conversion from sugar to stevia would be if you are using a liquid extract)
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1/4 tsp. sea salt
-1 large omega-3 egg
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1 cup grind-ed/blended oats (substitute for flour)
-1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts (this is optional but gives the cookies a crunchier taste)

Directions:
Beat the butter and peanut butter on high speed for 30 seconds in a large bowl using either an electric mixer or a Braun "stick" mixer. Add in PureVia Stevia, baking powder and baking soda. Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated and scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure the dough isn't sticking to them. Beat together the egg and vanilla and mix in with the rest of the ingredients. Slowly add in the grinded oats little bits at a time, making sure to blend them in well with the other ingredients. Mix in the chopped peanuts. Let the mixture cool for about 45 min. in the fridge so that the dough is easier to handle.
Roll balls (1 inch each) and place about 1.5-2 inches apart on a cookie sheet.
Make a criss-cross pattern on the cookies using a fork (this will also slightly flatten the dough)
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until the bottom of the cookies are lightly browned.

Let cool and Enjoy!!! :) 

***NOTE TO THOSE THAT WOULD LIKE A HIGH-PROTEIN SNACK, YOU CAN ADD IN 2-3 SCOOPS OF PEANUT BUTTER OR VANILLA-FLAVORED LOW-CARB WHEY PROTEIN TO THIS RECIPE (MIX IT IN WITH THE GROUND OATS) TO MAKE THESE HIGH-PROTEIN COOKIES...IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO THIS, THEN ONLY USE 6-8 ENVELOPES OF PURE-VIA AS THE WHEY PROTEIN IS ALREADY SWEETENED!!!***

XOXOXO,
