Ok, I have to give credit where credit is do. Brian knocked Valentine’s Day out of the PARK yesterday. I do all of the cooking in our house so I honestly thought Valentine’s Day dinner would be a hot mess. Brian offered to take me out for dinner but I thinking cooking for me at home is special. It shows effort and thought! For dessert, Brian made simple keto peanut butter cookies. And holy s**t they were amazing!! Like OMG good!!! I need to share this recipe because you guys HAVE to make it!!
Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup peanut butter (Smuckers Natural peanut butter has nothing but nuts and salt)
- 1/2 cup keto approved sweetener of your choice (Stevia, xylitol, erythritol, or monk fruit each of these sweeteners may be a different ratio compared to regular sugar. Please take that into account when you measure out a half a cup )
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium size bowl, add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them all together until it’s well combined.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls using a scoop or your hands.
Place the balls of dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Press down on each ball with a fork twice in opposite directions creating a criss-cross pattern on each cookie as seen in the photos below.
You will bake these cookies for about 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Allow them to cool down for about 5 minutes before removing them from the tray.
You have to try these! Just trust me on this one!!
