Grain-Free, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Do you remember eating those giant, sugary peanut butter cookies with the cute fork marks on them as a kid?  Yum!  If you miss those, try this super easy recipe for peanut butter cookies, or use sun butter or almond butter if PB is a problem.

Gluten/Grain-Free, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup natural organic creamy peanut butter (mine is salted)
2/3 cup erythritol (preferably powdered for baking to reduce the cooling sensation)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix everything together well.  Form into little 1 inch balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.  Use a fork to form the dough into cookies, as they won't spread much or at all.  Bake at 350 for 12 minutes or so or until they are JUST starting to brown a bit.  They won't seem cooked but once they cool they will be crunchy and crumbly.  You don't want to burn these guys so take them out sooner rather than later!!  Xoxo GFG

  1. Simply. Delicious. Thanks for the smile-inducing memory -- and the recipe. Of course since I blog for SunButter, I'll sub that in. Eager to try these on the gaggle of kids who land here after school. Take care.
