Crunchy vs. Soft Peanut Butter Cookies:
We get it. Most peeps are either ‘Team Crunchy’ or ‘Team Soft’. This sugar free peanut butter recipe can be either. If you prefer a softer texture, eat them as soon as they start to cool down as they crisp/firm up as they cool. If you like crispy peanut butter cookies, plan on letting them cool down for a minimum of 30 minutes to an hour.
- Mix in some crushed whole peanuts for a little crunch. Just add them with the other ingredients. No adjustment to the cook time would be needed. It will affect the nutritional value, however.
- If you’re into “salty” add 1/4 tsp of sea salt to the mix. Go big or go home, right?

- Pre-heat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

- Place on the prepared baking sheet and flatten with a fork to make a criss cross pattern (optional- but pretty).
- Bake for 12 minutes and let cool before eating.
- Our favorite sugar-free peanut butter is the Kirkland brand from Costco.
- We don't care for overly sweet goodies - if you do, you can increase the Erythritol to 1/3 or 1/2 cup.
- Store in a Ziploc bag or air-tight container for up to a week.
- How did we get to 1 net carb? We subtracted the fiber and sugar alcohols from the total carbs since Erythritol isn't absorbed by the body.
