Peanut Butter Cookies

Keto-friendly Peanut Butter Cookies


1 egg (pasture-raised, organic)

1 cup creamy peanut butter or almond butter

¼ tsp sea salt

¾ cup Just Like Sugar (I found the sugar makes a difference in the texture. This one works great!)

1 tsp baking powder     

½ tsp vanilla

3 tbsp water



In a medium bowl, mix the egg and peanut butter with a hand mixer until well-mixed.  

Add salt, baking powder, vanilla, and water, and mix again. You’ll see the mixture is more balled up than it is on a smooth batter or dough. After mixing for just a minute, set the mixer aside and finish the mixing with your hand, kneading the dough so it becomes a smooth batter. 

Scoop 1 inch balls (I use a cookie baller and I’m in love with it!) onto a parchment or silicone matt lined cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. They do not spread. Using a fork, create the classic criss-cross design by pressing the fork to flatten the dough a bit, then pressing again to cross it (making a big tic-tac-toe design). Cookies should remain a bit more than ¼ inch thick.  

Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes. Enjoy!
