What Sugar Can I Use in These Refined Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cookies?
For this recipe, I used truvia sweetener. I attempted a batch using baking stevia and they turned out horrible so I do not recommend it! You should be able to use any other granulated sweetener replacement, such as swerve, but you may want to cut back on the sweetener a bit if it is extra sweet, to taste.
How to make Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cookies
So the ingredients couldn’t be more simple for this recipe, and the directions couldn’t be either! Here’s how to whip up your easy and tasty cookies in no time at all:
Fire up your oven and let it preheat fully. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Using an electric hand mixer, beat together the peanut butter, truvia and salt. Add in the egg and beat again until the mixture forms a dough.
Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet and press them out with a fork. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until set.
For crispier cookies, let them cool completely on the pan. For softer cookies, let them cool partly on the pan and the rest of the way on a cooling rack. DEVOUR!
Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cookies Storage
These cookies last well when stored in the fridge or freezer! If you plan to store them in the fridge, I recommend placing them in an airtight container. They will keep well in the fridge for up to a week! If you want to freeze them, go for it! Simply place the cookies in an airtight container or freezer style ziploc bag and label it with the date you made them. Place them in the freezer and they will keep for up to 3 months.
