Healthy Low Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies {recipe}

clean healthy peanut butter cookies

Peanut butter! YUM!!

I don’t know why but it’s so tasty! Most people I know can’t get enough of the stuff! It’s definitely hard to limit how much you eat. I have to force myself to stop putting the spoon in for more.

Turn peanut butter into a cookie and wham!! even more potent!

However, many PB cookies are loaded with sugar. I’ve created a recipe to increase protein and lessen sugar. The cookies are also gluten-free.

Ingredients

1 cup natural peanut butter
1 scoop protein powder (I used a chocolate peanut butter kind)
1 egg
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup almond milk (make your own homemade almond milk)
1/4 cup almond flour (make your own with the almond meal from the homemade almond milk)

Pre-heat over to 350. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Make 20 small balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

    In the batch you made that included coconut, how much did you use?

    • FitHealthy365

      what I gave you had:
      1 cup PB
      1 scoop protein powder
      1/2 cup raisins (with some cranberries)
      1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
      1/3 cup almond flour
      1 egg

      I didn’t add any other liquid, so found them a bit dry… hence why I changed it. But, you could either have drier or add 1/4 cup almond milk.

      Enjoy!!
