Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies

Servings: 16 cookies
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
These Peanut Butter Cookies are so chewy, soft, and sweet, you'd never know they're sugar free, low carb, high protein, gluten free, eggless, and vegan!


  • 180g (1½ cups) Peanut Flour
  • 13g (2 tbs) Ground Flaxseed
  • 2 tsp Double-Acting Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 164g (⅔ cup) Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 128g (⅔ cup) Granulated Erythritol
  • 128g (½ cup) Natural Peanut Butter (the drippy kind)
  • 60g (¼ cup) Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line 2 cookie sheets with silicone baking mats.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut flour, flaxseed, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the applesauce, erythritol, peanut butter, almond milk, and vanilla extract. Dump the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients and fold together with a silicone spatula. Dough should be THICK!
  • Scoop 2 heaping tablespoons of the cookie dough into your palms, roll it into a ball, then gently flatten it into a patty shape (these cookies don’t spread much, so form them into your desired shape and thickness). Place the cookie dough patty onto the prepared cookie sheet. Do this with the rest of the cookie dough.
  • Bake for ~15 minutes. Let cool on the pan. Serve immediately, or store in a tightly sealed container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Recipe Notes

I originally wasn't going to share the recipe here because I worked so incredibly hard on publishing Naughty or Nice.  But I wanted to provide it here because that way, you can determine whether or not the cookbook is for you!
