The easiest, most delicious Peanut butter cookies you'll ever have! Low carb/ keto, and less than 40 calories per cookie!
What do you do when cravings attack? I wish I could tell you I go to my freezer and get a pint of ice cream and sit until I finish it all. But I don't.
I love to have some peanuts when snacky, or a heaping spoon of creamy peanut butter. But what I love the most is baking desserts. I love baking cookies. And I bet everybody loves cookies!
Creamy peanut butter is perfect to give your cookies a twist. Especially now that it's fall! The warm flavor of these cookies, enhanced with a pinch of cinnamon, is just perfect. They look crunchy on the outside but in fact, they are so tender that melt in your mouth instantly. That's how good they are!
My daughter is a picky eater. She loves cupcakes, chocolate chips and ice cream. But she's one of those people that you have to deceive to make them eat a new thing.
These cookies were that perfect bait. I made a batch and just sat where my picky daughter could see me. Me, my tray of cookies and a cup of hot coffee! I made a sound of satisfaction and instantly she was by my side with her inquisitive look.
"What are those?" -She asked with curiosity.
"Cookies!" -I said happily while chewing another bite.
"And they are made off?" -She asked, waiting for the list of ingredients to determine if she would try or not. I was determined to make her eat some, or at least to have a little bite.
"They are made of cookies!" -I answered casually and had a sip of my coffee. By that time, I had finished one cookie and had another one in my hand. -"They are so good! Melt in my mouth!"
Her curiosity was activated but still was reluctant to try. I just stood up and left her with the cookie tray in front of her. A second later, she was talking about how good they tasted and if she could give her brother some.
This recipe reminds me of the Puerto Rican "polvorones" ("Shortbread cookies"). A little crispy outside but in the end a wonderful melt-in-your-mouth explosion of flavor. It's very easy to create, just toss it all in one bowl, combine it all very well and bake. In less than 10 minutes you'll have these babies in the oven.
I advise you to double or triple your recipe. They won't last long.
Lots of love,
